SGI Takes Big Data Performance To New Levels With Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 Family

SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), the trusted leader in technical computing, today announced full support for the newest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2400 and E5-4600 product families. With a strong relationship and over ten years of technology collaboration resulting in numerous innovative high performance computing advancements, SGI is incorporating the newest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 into SGI’s future shared memory platforms with many new, unique capabilities. The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2400 is now the base processor in the SGI Hadoop Starter Kits and is available in the SGI® Rackable™ product line for use in other applications.

“Intel’s decade-long close collaboration with SGI has resulted in countless improvements in performance and power efficiency of HPC solutions being employed by many of the world’s leading research facilities and businesses,” said Raj Hazra, IAG vice president and general manager Technical Computing Group, Intel. “SGI has taken advantage of Intel’s new Xeon processors to deliver highly differentiated products with unprecedented speed and scale for applications ranging from HPC to business intelligence and data warehousing, including Big Data, Simulation, Analytics and beyond.”

The world’s largest and fastest scale-up computer – A Big Brain system

SGI’s next generation coherent shared memory platform for high speed data-intensive computing, the SGI UV, will be based on the Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 processor family. Users will be able to take advantage of significant performance improvements while enjoying simplified administration, consolidation of applications and ease of development, all due to a single system image scaling to thousands of cores and many terabytes of memory versus alternatives which require hundreds of nodes. The system is completely open, running standard Intel x86, standard Linux, and off-the-shelf applications and middleware, all while maintaining high efficiency and uptime.

The SGI UV system once again beats the existing world records for SPECjbb2005 (record total throughput) and SPECompL2001, with a 58% improvement in SPECompL2001 from the previous generation based on Intel® Xeon® E7 processor family. The SGI next generation shared memory platform has also achieved top 64 socket Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 benchmarks for SPECint_rate_base2006 and SPECfp_rate_base2006 1.

This system will allow users to solve their most demanding problems with fast, scalable performance operating at up to 64 terabytes of memory and with up to 4096 cores in the world’s largest coherent shared memory single-instance system, providing the fastest path to results for complex multi-terabyte problems including simulation and modeling, fraud prevention, threat detection, drug discovery, weather and climate modeling, genomics and computational chemistry and physics.
