SGI® UV

The World's Most Powerful In-Memory Supercomputers


SGI UV 3000 and SGI UV 30

Solve the Most Demanding Compute-Intensive Problems
Part of the SGI UV server line for high performance in-memory computing, new SGI UV 3000 and SGI UV 30 are advanced symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems designed for compute-intensive, fast algorithm workloads such as CAE, genome assembly, and scientific simulations.

SGI UV 3000 scales to extraordinary levels - up to 256 CPU sockets and 64TB of cache-coherent shared memory in a single system. Enabling such powerful in-memory computing capability is 6th generation SGI NUMAlink® ASIC technology, providing extreme bandwidth, low latency network interconnects. UV 3000 can be leveraged as a "super node" for clustered high performance computing (HPC) and, equipped with an integrated MPI Offload Engine, fully optimize applications developed for distributed computing.

Designed for smaller, compute-intensive environments, SGI UV 30 is a 2U, 4-socket server providing up to 3TB of in-memory computing power.

Single System Simplicity with Extreme Scalability
The SGI UV 3000 features a modular design enabling users to grow their system without adding complexity. A 10U chassis contains up to 16 sockets coupled with an All-to-All NUMAlink network topology. By adding additional chassis and using an Enhanced Hypercube topology, UV 3000 can scale from 4 to 256 sockets and 8,192 threads, all operating as a single system. It's like running a giant workstation with lightning speed and maximum investment protection.

Flexible, Open, Energy Efficient
Featuring Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 v3 processors with eight DIMMs per socket, UV 3000's x86 architecture delivers a high processor to memory ratio. NVIDIA® Quadro® and NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors can also be added. A choice of unmodified SUSE® Linux® Enterprise Server or Red Hat® Enterprise Linux operating systems make the UV 3000 ideal for standard ISV and open source applications as well as custom codes. And SGI's innovative air or water cooling helps lower energy costs.

High Performance Storage with Fast Access
Industry-standard PCIe Gen3 expansion slots provide countless options for persistent storage with fast I/O. For storage systems, select from the entire SGI InfiniteStorage line of Storage Servers, RAID and tape libraries, as well as industry-standard 3rd party offerings. For storage software, leverage Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre, SGI CXFS™, or industry standard XFS® file systems, SGI XVM® volume management, SGI DMF™ tiered data management, and 3rd party backup solutions.

Scale Existing SGI UV Systems
SGI UV 2000 (PDF), the predecessor to SGI UV 3000 and featuring Intel Xeon v2 processors, remains available for customers who wish to scale up their existing UV 2000 environments.
