SGI InfiniteData Cluster is a highly flexible cluster computing platform combining breakthrough server and storage density with extreme, scale-out performance. Designed for High Performance Computing (HPC) spanning Big Data Analytics and moderate technical computing environments, as well as for Private and Public Clouds, InfiniteData Cluster accelerates time to value in data and compute intensive environments with greater efficiency, less complexity, and at lower cost.
Density, Performance, and Scale
InfiniteData Cluster offers up to 1,920 cores and an unparalleled 1.9PB of data capacity per rack-delivering over 2X the compute and storage density of any enterprise-class cluster solution. Providing up to forty 2U server/storage trays or eighty 1U server trays in a purpose-built, roll-in enclosure, InfiniteData Cluster utilizes SGI's unique 3rd generation tray design featuring dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 product family, up to twelve 3.5" hard drives, and high speed network connectivity. Centrally managed using SGI Management Center, InfiniteData Cluster solutions can start with a small number of nodes in a single rack, or encompass multiple racks with thousands of nodes and linear scalability.
Big Data Analytics with Hadoop
Providing faster and greater insight for lines of business and saving hundreds to thousands of hours in deployment manpower, InfiniteData Cluster solutions for Apache Hadoop® come pre-racked, pre-configured and pre-tested with all compute/storage and network hardware, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, and Cloudera® software. See SGI Solutions for Hadoop for more information on how InfiniteData Cluster helps speed and simplify business analytics.
Flexible, Power Up and Go! Configurations
InfiniteData Cluster is designed with optimal flexibility and to expand as your data and compute needs grow. The half-width 2U server/storage tray can accommodate SAS or SATA drives ranging from 500GB to 4TBs. Network switching is available with 1Gb and 10Gb Ethernet connectivity, as well as QDR or FDR Infiniband. And all InfiniteData Cluster configurations are delivered from SGI pre-racked and ready to power up and go!
Superior Serviceability and SGI Energy Efficiency
All InfiniteData Cluster components-trays, interconnects, and I/O-are cold-aisle accessible to support high-efficiency, hot-aisle/cold-aisle floor plans. The 1U and 2U trays pull out easily if in need of service, disk drives can be added or replaced in minutes, and to keep energy costs low, require less than 10W for cooling.
