SGI Delivers Large Scale Shared Memory System for JAMSTEC Earth Simulator

As one of world's largest shared memory systems, SGI® UV™ 2000 with 32TB of memory built with the new Intel ® Xeon® processor E5-4600 v2, provides greater degree of precision and compute efficiency

The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) has selected SGI UV 2000 powered by Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 v2 series for pre and post-processing offline grid simulations for its Earth Simulator supercomputer. Working with NEC, the SGI solution will be installed at the JAMSTEC Earth Simulator Center and is targeted for production on March 24th, 2014.

The JAMSTEC Earth Simulator supercomputer is integrated with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 v2, which Intel® officially launched on March 3rd, 2014. The new Intel processor was built for efficiency and performance for the enterprise market. With the combination of SGI UV 2000 and this new Intel processor, SGI continues to see HPC customers utilizing the scalable open shared memory platform while simultaneously expanding its use cases in the enterprise market.

The 4K Video Revolution
With supporting technology for 4K video now widely available, the biggest challenge for content producers, broadcasters, post production houses and distribution companies is managing these complex digital media workflows: moving huge volumes of data, having data available where and when it's needed, and storing it safely and securely.

Accelerate Oracle Apps with X-86 Based High Density
In-Memory Computing

Deriving meaningful insight from growing data sets is pushing the limits of traditional database and BI solutions. As a result, customers are turning to In Memory Databases (IMDB) solutions, which enable dramatic acceleration in response times by eliminating the network latency and disk I/O from the equation.

While customers are well aware of the benefits of RAM-based IMBD, traditional solutions have required the adoption of expensive and proprietary RISC systems to accommodate datasets that are in excess of 2TB. SGI's UV 2000 delivers high density in-memory solutions based on an industry standard X-86 architecture with the ability to scale coherent shared memory to 64TB of RAM under a single system image.

The combination of SGI's UV 2000 high-density shared memory solution with the FedCentric Memory Centric Database (MCDB) toolkit enables the delivery of the proven performance of Oracle TimesTen on an X-86 based architecture with the ability to scale to > 40TB of coherent shared memory. This architecture has been tested to deliver up to 3.5 million record inserts per second, a 600x improvement vs. the previous disk-based solution. Further enhancing the value proposition of core optimization enabled customers can significantly reduce the cost of software licenses. Core optimization determines the optimal core to I/O ratio, enabling customers to purchase licenses only on those cores that will contribute to performance.

Since 1984, FileTek, Inc. has established a strong reputation as a leading provider of large-scale data management, Big Data storage virtualization, and active archive solutions throughout the globe.

In acquiring the assets of FileTek, SGI builds on its expertise in High Performance Computing and Big Data to become a global leader in petascale storage solutions. Adding World-Class Storage Software SGI gains two highly complementary FileTek products, Trusted Edge® and StorHouse®, with many benefits for existing and new customers. SGI will continue to support and market these products under the SGI brand.

Trusted Edge® software adds intelligent analysis of data assets held on heterogeneous primary storage, and automated, policy-based data migration for
SGI® InfiniteStorage™ Gateway solutions.

StorHouse® software adds a proven information lifecycle management and active archive solution that includes structured data, complementing SGI's renowned highly-scalable DMF technology for unstructured data.

The huge volume of data in today's enterprise is overwhelming budgets and staff. Often organizations do not distinguish between data that is regularly accessed (hot data), and data that is needed but infrequently utilized (cool data). Why pay for increasing silos of expensive primary storage capacity when cool data can be archived at a fraction of the cost, while remaining seamlessly accessible?
