Join SGI in Booth #1519 at SC16 in Salt Lake City, UT
HPC matters to individuals and organizations around the planet. Predicting climate change to help mitigate its effects. Cracking the code of the wheat genome to ensure we can feed future generations. Simulating geologic formations deep beneath the Earth's surface to unlock precious energy resources. Making safer cars by learning from laps run on the Formula One circuit.

At SC16, SGI will show the world how we power the future. Schedule a booth tour with us in
booth #1519 at SC16. We look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City!


Meeting Manufacturing's Need for Production Supercomputing
High performance computing (HPC) has been a mainstay of manufacturers for many years, and the industry's computing needs are growing rapidly. Today, most manufacturers need access to production-quality supercomputing capabilities that will allow them to run highly-parallelized simulations on tens of thousands of cores and beyond.  One particular area where this computing power is needed is in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workloads.

UK Met Office Installs New HPC System to Significantly Improve Productivity of Weather and Climate Data Analysis
SGI together with Bright Computing and DataDirect Networks (DDN) announced that the Met Office,
the United Kingdom's national weather service, selected the three HPC vendors to provide high performance computing capabilities for its new Scientific Processing and Intensive Compute Environment (SPICE) system. SPICE will enable weather and climate researchers to dramatically reduce time required to analyze massive amounts of climate simulation data

Recorded Webinar
An Enterprise Guide to SAP BW/4HANA
In this webinar recording, experts from Bluefin Solutions and SGI discuss strategies for adding SAP BW/4HANA to your digital roadmap, its benefits to business and IT, and a unique system architecture that provides large enterprises with an optimal path to SAP S/4HANA deployments.

SGI Apps Engineering Solution Brief
Manufacturers are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and increase quality throughout the
entire design cycle. The use of virtual prototyping development (VPD) software and high performance computing (HPC) systems allows manufacturers to validate a design before committing to making expensive physical prototypes. SGI helps manufacturers maximize engineering productivity and speed up the time to market.

Solutions Brief

SGI Introduces Unique Scale-out Solution for SAP HANA® that Protects Investments When Moving to Real-time Business
SGI announced that enterprises can now leverage the Intel-based SGI UV 300H server in a multi-node cluster (scale out) to run SAP® Business Warehouse (SAP BW) on SAP HANA® or new SAP BW/4HANA. Unique to SGI, the cluster nodes can later be reconfigured as single-node systems with 1 to 32TB of shared memory (scale up) to run SAP S/4HANA® and other real-time applications. SGI also announced that deployments of the SGI UV 300H as a single-node system provide in total over 800 Terabytes of in-memory computing capacity to organizations running the SAP HANA platform. These announcements reflect SGI's broadening leadership in high-performance data analytics and continuing innovation to achieve greater insight and gain competitive advantage with SAP HANA.

SGI, ANSYS Set New Record for Scaling Commercial CAE Code
SGI teamed with ANSYS set a new world record for scaling commercial CAE code. According to SGI, the two companies broke a record set last year by running ANSYS Fluent combustion modeling software across 145,000 CPU cores, exceeding by more than 16,000 the old record.

SGI Enables Romanian Aerospace Agency to Run Highly Complex Aeronautic Models Six Times Faster
The National Institute of Aerospace Research (INCAS) "Elie Carafoli" will power its scientific and aeronautical research program with a new SGI UV high-performance computing (HPC) system, installed with the assistance of our valued partner, Spearhead Systems. This updated SGI system allows INCAS to run its high fidelity simulations with dedicated software up to six times faster. The new SGI HPC system will be at the centre of INCAS' research, providing the computing power required for INCAS' research projects involving aerodynamic resistance modelling and manipulation.

SGI Powers New Cirrus Supercomputer at EPCC
Businesses could dramatically cut the time taken to bring new products and services to market with help from a new SGI supercomputer at EPCC, the UK's leading supercomputing center based at the University of Edinburgh. Called, Cirrus, the new system is a state-of-the art SGI ICE XA cluster with 56 compute nodes and an Infiniband interconnect.
