SGI Supercomputer Recognized as Industry's Top Commercial Supercomputer on TOP500 List
Total, one of the largest worldwide integrated oil and gas companies, was recently recognized by the prestigious TOP500 list for its SGI® ICE X system, "Pangea," as the highest performing commercial supercomputer in the world. The TOP500 list, released at the International Supercomputing Conference 2016, ranks the most powerful, installed supercomputers globally.

Pangea, located at Total's Jean Feger Scientific and Technical Centre in Pau, France, is a decision-support tool used for exploration and field management, improving the accuracy of subsurface imaging, optimizing the development and production of Total's fields, and saving time, by shortening the duration of studies. The SGI ICE X supercomputer with 6.7 petaflops of compute power is the number one system in the industry among the top most powerful supercomputers worldwide.

SGI Welcomes Cisco as a Solution Reseller
We are proud to announce that SGI has entered into agreement wherein Cisco will resell the SGI® UV 300H, our purpose-built server for in-memory computing with SAP HANA®.  Complementing Cisco's robust solution portfolio for SAP HANA, the SGI UV 300H is now available through Cisco's salesforce and global channel network as a single-node (scale up) system to run SAP® S/4HANA and other SAP applications on SAP HANA for real-time business.  This new reseller relationship is beneficial to SGI, to Cisco and Cisco Channel Partners, and most importantly, to Enterprise customers.

With SGI System, the University of Tokyo Studies Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics and More
The University of Tokyo has chosen SGI®, through a competitive bid, to perform advanced data analysis and simulation within its Information Technology Center. The center is one of Japan's major research and educational institutions for building, applying, and utilizing large computer systems.

SGI Opens European Joint Research Centre with the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre
SGI announced a significant investment in extreme scale software research at The Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC). The investments at this top tier research centre at the University of Edinburgh highlight the commitment of SGI to the European software research community. These resources, including SGI application software and supercomputing hardware expertise, will assist scientists as they explore issues related to healthcare, materials science, climate change and renewable resources, among many other topics.

SGI Further Increases Scale-up Capacity for SAP HANA to 20TB with Rapid Support for the Intel Xeon Processor E7 v4 Family
Just a short time ago we announced the SGI UV 300H server is #1 in scale-up capacity for real-time analytics with SAP HANA®.  How quickly things change - and for the better!

SAP recently began certifying servers running SAP HANA that utilize the newly released Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v4 family.  While requiring additional certification, SAP also increased the amount of memory allowed per processor for single-node systems (not multi-node clusters), and specifically from a maximum of 3TB per 4 sockets to 4TB per 4 sockets. Not only is SGI proud to have received both certifications, but the increase in memory per processor enabled us to increase the single-node scale-up capacity of SGI UV 300H from 15TB to 20TB!
