With solutions that integrate every phase of HPC workflow, company helps customers to handle data deluge
AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 17 -- SC08 -- Recognizing that most of today's high-performance computing (HPC) solutions fall short when it comes to handling a deluge of data and increasingly complex workflows, Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) arrives at SC08 today to spotlight solutions that integrate every phase of the HPC workflow.
At this annual international gathering of HPC leaders, Silicon Graphics this week will demonstrate its integrated, solutions-oriented infrastructure that enables visual insight -- the superior insight that comes only when users can see their information.
"The traditional approach to attacking complex science and engineering problems is to compute, store and then move your model across the network in order to visualize the results," said Shahin Khan, vice president of marketing and strategy at Silicon Graphics. "That approach worked when models were smaller and computations were simpler. But a new way is needed when models can have billions of elements and multi-disciplinary science is the norm, and when productivity gains require that we think in terms of the entire HPC workflow. Today, models are much larger than the images or videos that represent them, so it makes much better sense to move the images -- rather than the model -- across the network. Silicon Graphics provides the complete software and hardware solution to do that."
Highlights of the company's presence at SC08 include demonstrations of the latest Silicon Graphics solutions in Booth 1009 of the Austin Convention Center. Among them:
Silicon Graphics will also make several customer, third-party and industry announcements throughout the week at SC08.
