SGI Accessibility

General Accessibility Statement

Since its inception in 1981, SGI has always been at the forefront of the technological revolution. SGI's server, storage, and software products are designed for the most high performance computing (HPC) workloads and data environments. Leveraging open systems with broad flexibility SGI products build on over twenty years of HPC expertise to help our customers find answers to their biggest challenges at greater speed, scale and efficiency.

SGI's products fall under the requirements of Section 508 as they meet the Electronic Information Technology definition (EIT). As such, SGI has undertaken a review of its products in relation to the outlined requirements.

SGI's systems are typically installed in a computer room environment and are interacted with through a workstation or PC located elsewhere. These workstations and PCs are connected to SGI equipment via a network using industry standard communication protocols. SGI's systems use open operating systems such as SUSE™ and Red Hat™ further facilitating compatibility with commonly used assistive technologies. SGI's documentation is available in electronic format and can be downloaded from the SGI Customer Portal, available in HTML and PDF formats. Service and support for SGI equipment can be accommodated through voice or email communication, providing access for those with disabilities.
