Data Analytics Solutions for a Variety of Needs

SGI High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions for Data Analytics are designed to address two principle metrics: data analysis and time to value. When data relationships are sufficiently understood to allow parsing into chunks using Apache® Hadoop™ — and need for results allows hours to days — SGI® InfiniteData™ Cluster offers the ideal compute platform. In fact, SGI was at the forefront of Hadoop Solutions with cluster installations now reaching tens of thousands of nodes.

Additionally, SGI® UV™ offers the ideal solution with the industry's most powerful shared memory platform when you need to find hidden data relationships or perform real-time analysis. SGI provides a variety of solutions to meet your data analytic needs.

Scale Up, Single-node Architecture for SAP HANA®

Engineered from the ground up to optimize performance of in-memory database management systems, SGI's forthcoming appliance will deliver on the vision of operational simplicity and seamless scale within a single-node architecture. As a result, customers can achieve real-time analytics with future-proof scalability beyond the current 8-socket threshold of traditional x86-based single-node architectures.

Leveraging our seventh-generation SGI UV server line with breakthrough coherent shared memory technology, the new SGI appliance will provide an ideal solution for customers seeking instantaneous intelligence on transactional data using the SAP business suite on HANA, or for customers engaged in heavy analytics that tax the performance of scale-out implementations. You will be able to run ERP, data warehouse, and other applications on a single in-memory system, free from the limits of clusters.

The first appliance release will contain an 8-socket UV system utilizing Intel® Xeon® E7 8890 v2 processors coupled with 6TB of shared memory that's designed to scale to 32 sockets and 24TB of shared memory as a single-node system. By simply adding sockets and memory, enterprises will be able to scale seamlessly. There is no need to redistribute data or balance I/O when increasing the size of the appliance, as performance scales linearly and automatically.

Big Data Storage

Integrating Scality RING software with innovative SGI Modular InfiniteStorage Server hardware, SGI® OmniStor™ provides object-based, "scale-out" storage for petabyte environments, with limitless file size and quantity, eliminating RAID rebuilds, and delivering 40% or more in costs savings. SGI® InfiniteStorage™ Gateway enables IT organizations to align data throughout its lifecycle with the most appropriate storage medium while maintaining seamless users access, significantly reducing the cost of high volume storage.
