Silicon Graphics Technology opens new opportunities for industrial and research customers
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 8 -- Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) global shared memory architecture enables industrial, government and university researchers to gain insight into larger data sets than ever thought possible. With 8TB of global shared memory, SGI Altix systems are able to hold entire data sets in memory and eliminate many types of application and system I/O -- accelerating scientific research and I/O bound business computing problems.
With up to 8TB of global shared memory with as few as 12 processor cores, SGI Altix 4700 systems are enabling applications for a number of important projects:
"With 8TB of global shared memory on the SGI Altix 4700, scientists and engineers around the world are able to boost productivity by integrating theory, simulation and experimentation more closely than every before," said Michael Brown, director of server and visualization marketing at Silicon Graphics. "With 8TB of global shared memory, scientists, engineers and businesses can solve problems that are 4x larger than on the largest systems from IBM and HP, and 8x larger than the largest systems available from Sun. This allows developers to link multi-disciplinary applications that operate on different scales to create more complete pictures of their work -- gaining invaluable insights that lead to breakthrough results."
