SGI® InfiniteStorage™ Gateway
Brings Intelligent Virtualized Data Management
to Conquer Massive Data Growth

Building on over 21 years of experience with multi-petabyte data management solutions

SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway is the virtualized data management solution which reduces the runaway costs and complexity organizations face when managing exponential data growth. SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway reduces the dependency on high-cost primary storage by creating a virtualized storage fabric that can include disk, tape, object and cloud storage. While appearing to users and applications simply as online data, SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway offers IT administrators the ability to keep data protected and online at a fraction of the cost of primary storage systems. The system automatically places data on any or all storage devices and locations based upon what works best for the access requirements and data protection policies.

Total Selects Petascale Class SGI Compute and Storage Solution for Oil and Gas Exploration

SGI® Cyprus Point Breaks New Ground in Performance, Efficiency and Reliability

Total has selected the SGI® ICE™ X High Performance Computing (HPC) system as the platform for its new supercomputer named "Pangea." Pangea provides the necessary data processing power for the identification of oil and gas reserves below the Earth's surface. The massive amount of data the system generates is managed by the SGI InfiniteStorage ecosystem and the SGI DMF tiered storage virtualization solution.
Total's investment in Pangea will enable research scientists to develop more complete visualizations of seismic landscapes over time, while concurrently running simulations at 10 times the resolution of existing oil and gas reservoir models. Ultimately this new research should provide a clearer picture of what is happening beneath Earth's surface, allowing for more efficient upstream oil and gas exploration, as well as the discovery of reserves under more challenging geological conditions.
