SGI Continues Exascale Move With Integration Of Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 Family

Stocks in this article: SGI

SGI (NASDAQ:SGI), the trusted leader in technical computing, today announced that it is continuing its march toward exascale computing with the integration of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family into all of its high performance compute (HPC) server and storage platforms and product families. Full support for the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family in the SGI® Rackable™, SGI ICE™ X HPC and SGI Modular InfiniteStorage™ (MIS) platforms is also now available.

SGI has been shipping Rackable servers to its public cloud customers since September 2011, and is shipping 26.73 teraflops per rack this month in its ICE X platform. The MIS server platform represents the densest storage server platform in the industry today, and is based solely on the Intel ® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family. As the most flexible, high-performance computing platform in the industry, the SGI Rackable line takes advantage of the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family to drive the most dramatic performance improvements in a typical product generation - in some cases up to 2X¹ and beyond the performance of the previous generation for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.

The SGI Rackable line has led the HPC industry by providing the first power-optimized Hadoop cluster available. With improvements to the power management capability for the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family, this performance extends further, now providing one of the most energy efficient solutions in the industry. With new features of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family, including the integration of the PCI-E generation 3.0 controller into the socket, the Rackable line is completely redefined with higher levels of CPU core count density and I/O slot density than previous generation of Rackable servers.

“Our computing resources provide support for the groundbreaking research conducted by the members of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and most complex scientific instrument ever conceived,” said Sérgio Novaes, head of the Center for Scientific Computing at the Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP). “We depend on having the finest compute technologies at our disposal for our strategic initiatives, and we are happy to have received the necessary financial support from FAPESP, the Sao Paulo Research Foundation, which allowed us to upgrade our systems to the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family. This upgrade will ensure that we stay on the leading edge of high performance computing well into the future.”
