SGI to Showcase Deskside to Supercomputer Offerings at GPU Technology Conference 2010
FREMONT, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 15, 2010 — SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), a trusted leader in technical computing, today announced the availability of NVIDIA Tesla 20-series GPUs, based on the latest generation Fermi architecture, for SGI’s GPU compute solutions. Delivering application-specific acceleration, SGI’s GPU computing portfolio ranges from the deskside to the supercomputer with products optimized to address the most computationally-intensive environments in the world. As a leader in acceleration and design-to-order solutions, SGI is uniquely positioned to provide NVIDIA Fermi integration, bringing customers hybrid solutions of traditional microprocessors and accelerators that solve critical technical computing problems.
“With NVIDIA Tesla GPUs integrated into the SGI product portfolio, customers can now deploy solutions that are optimized to address their most challenging technical computing problems,” said Andy Keane, general manager, Tesla business at NVIDIA.
SGI’s unique GPU compute solutions immediately available with NVIDIA Fermi include:
“SGI leads the industry in delivering application-specific acceleration with partners such as NVIDIA,” said Bill Mannel, vice president of product marketing at SGI. “SGI is excited to continue our relationship with NVIDIA, integrating Fermi into our GPU portfolio for best-in-class graphics and GPU options. Additionally, we look forward to integrating NVIDIA Tesla GPUs into future offerings, including ‘Project Mojo,’ our hybrid computing platform.”
Mr. Mannel will be presenting “What If You Had a Petabyte of Memory and/or a Petaflop of Compute?” at the GPU Technology Conference on Wednesday, September 22, at 10:00 a.m. PT. This session will explore application spaces where GPU compute coupled with very large shared memory architectures and/or petaflops of compute are allowing new science and business questions to be addressed.
In addition to support for NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, SGI recently coupled its hardware solutions with a team of application engineering and professional services experts able to tune customer applications for GPU computing. Because of this expertise, the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC) chose to work exclusively with SGI to enable institutions and businesses to accelerate the development of applications that utilize GPU compute systems.
