High Performance Computing

Accelerate time to discovery, innovation and profitability

SGI UV scale-up computing solutions help customers find answers to their biggest challenges.

SGI® UV™ in-memory computing systems are the most powerful in the world. Operating like a single workstation, SGI UV 2000 can provide up to 64TBs of coherent shared memory to run data-intensive applications at lightning speed.

Newly available SGI® UV™ for SAP HANA® is a purpose-built, in-memory computing appliance that's designed to enable enterprises to achieve real-time operations at extreme scale and lower cost of ownership.

Scale-up Computing


Solve the Most Demanding Compute-Intensive Problems

Part of the SGI UV server line for high performance in-memory computing, SGI UV 2000 and SGI UV 20 are advanced symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems designed for compute-intensive, fast algorithm workloads such as CAE, CFD, and scientific simulations.

SGI UV 2000 scales to truly extraordinary levels-up to 256 CPU sockets and 64TB of cache-coherent shared memory in a single system. Enabling such powerful in-memory computing capability is 6th generation SGI NUMAlink® ASIC technology, providing extreme bandwidth, low latency network interconnects. Equipped with an integrated MPI Offload Engine, UV 2000 can also be leveraged for distributed applications and as a "super node" for clustered high performance computing (HPC) systems.

Single System Simplicity with Extreme Scalability

The SGI UV 2000 features a modular chassis design that enables users to grow their system without adding complexity. A 10U chassis contains up to 16 sockets and 24 threads coupled with an All-to-All NUMAlink network topology. By adding additional chassis (up to four per standard 19" rack) and using an Enhanced Hypercube topology, UV 2000 can scale up to 256 sockets and 4,096 threads, all operating as a single system. It's like running a giant workstation with lightning speed and maximum investment protection.

Flexible, Open, Energy Efficient

SGI UV 2000 is designed with optimum flexibility. Featuring Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 processors with eight DIMMs per socket, the system's x86 architecture delivers a high processor to memory ratio. NVIDIA® Quadro® and NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators and Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors can also be added. A choice of unmodified SUSE® Linux® Enterprise Server or Red Hat® Enterprise Linux operating systems make the UV 2000 ideal for standard ISV and open source applications as well custom codes. And SGI's innovative air or water cooling helps lower energy costs.

SGI ICE - The World's Most Powerful Distributed-Memory Supercomputers

SGI ICE X is SGI's 5th generation ICE system and powers many of the largest supercomputing environments in the world. ICE X delivers the record speed of ICE XA, a variety of high-density blades, and optimum Infiniband flexibility.
