SGI and the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 Series

Bill Mannel from SGI and Bill Thigpen from NASA discuss high-end computing at NASA and the SGI ICE X based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 Series.

SGI® is all about Speed and Scale.

Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series provides the perfect engine under the hood for all of our solutions, optimized by SGI® Performance Suite. Power Management is available across the entire product family, enabled via Intel® Power Manager and SGI® Management Center.

SGI has been shipping Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series since September, starting with our customer base in public cloud. In March 2012 we are shipping 26.73 Teraflops in an SGI® ICE™ X rack.

We are also shipping the densest storage server ever, SGI® Modular InfiniteStorage™, also based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series.

What are our customers saying about SGI products with Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series:

"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 São Paulo Research Foundation, which allowed us to upgrade our systems to the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series. This upgrade will ensure that we stay on the leading edge of high performance computing well into the future."
