The Trusted Leader in High Performance Computing



Petascale Performance Leadership

SGI's ICE X system is the latest generation of the record holding ICE family. This new addition continues the ICE legacy by making it the world's fastest distributed memory supercomputer for over 5 years running. This performance leadership is proven time and again, not just in the lab, but at customer sites including the largest and fastest pure compute InfiniBand cluster in the world.

The system can be configured with compute nodes comprising of Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 series exclusively or with compute nodes comprising of both Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 series and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. Running on standard Linux®, the SGI ICE X can deliver over 191 teraflops per rack and scale from 36 to tens of thousands of nodes to solve the world's most challenging compute problems.

SGI's ICE X is designed to minimize system overhead and communication bottlenecks that can rob efficiency and scalability. The system, for example, offers the highest performance and scalability for computer fluid dynamics (CFD), demonstrating up to 3,072 cores processing in parallel.

Production-Ready in Hours or Days, Not Weeks or Months

Power up and go, at scale, in less time and with less effort. Built entirely on industry-standard hardware and software components, the SGI ICE X server enables access to the full spectrum of the Linux ecosystem.

SGI Performance Suite optimizes the performance of Linux applications while SGI Foundation Suite optimizes drivers and system monitoring. SGI Management Suite helps ease administration, including all-important power management, and maintain high reliability, availability and serviceability.

Ultimate Flexibility and Seamless Scalability

The SGI ICE X is the only system in its class offering expandability within and across technology generations while maintaining uninterrupted production workflow. It is the only platform capable of seamless scalability from tens of teraflops to tens of petaflops. Clusters can be architected in a variety of topologies with choice of switch and single or dual plane InfiniBand blade connection. The integrated switch blade design offers rack-level redundant power and cooling via air, warm water or cold water, for enhanced reliability and availability. The result is a system with unmatched efficiency, performance and overall value.

Also available with storage and visualization options, the SGI ICE X system sets a new standard for flexibility, simplicity and ease-of-use in scale-out computing. Along with industry-leading professional services and support, SGI enables customers to efficiently overcome the challenges of complex data intensive workflows and accelerate results.
