SGI Japan Delivers Large Scale Visualization System to Nagoya University

MILPITAS, CA and TOKYO, JAPAN -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 12, 2014 -- SGI Japan, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SGI), part of SGI, a global leader in high performance solutions for compute, data analytics and data management, announced Nagoya University has deployed a major visualization system based on the SGI® UV™ 2000 in-memory computing system.

This new solution enables Nagoya University to create high-resolution 3D images that will drive education and research in areas including plasma fluid, earthflow phenomenon and medical fields. As one of the largest dedicated visualization system in the world, Nagoya University will be able to process high resolution visualization with a single operating system.

The deployment also includes SGI® VizServer® with NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization™ software to enable Nagoya University to seamlessly conduct joint research with other centers across Japan. Currently the system is utilized by the High Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI), a computational environment that connects the diversified supercomputing needs of universities and research institutions in Japan through a high speed network. SGI VizServer enables work in progress to be shared with researchers at different campuses and makes it possible for multiple users to simultaneously utilize 3D visualization images from remote PCs.

The SGI UV 2000 for Nagoya University is equipped with 20 terabytes of shared memory and 1,280 Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 processors. With this system, users are able to project images at 8K resolution, equivalent to eight times the resolution of full hi-vision, on 16 46-inch LCD screens arranged in a four by four grid.

The SGI in-memory computing solution also includes SGI InfiniteStorage 17000 with over three petabytes of physical RAID capacity to support the researchers' data storage needs.

Construction and installation of this system was conducted in collaboration with Information Technology Center, Nagoya University and with Fujitsu Limited. The system has been operational since March 2014.

"The innovative work being done with Nagoya University is another example of how SGI is enabling a large research community to meet the computational requirements of its vast research objectives," said Jorge Titinger, president and CEO, SGI. "SGI is looking forward to collaborating further with Nagoya University and its researchers."
