In this presentation, Bill Mannel from SGI provides an overview of the company's HPC solutions with Intel Xeon E5-2600v2 Processors.

"SGI today announced support for Intel's newest Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family. This new microprocessor provides a 37 percent increase in peak performance per rack of its ICE X supercomputer as well as new performance records for its Rackable line of servers. Now harnessing the newest Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family, SGI ICE X, Rackable and Modular InfiniteStorage products allow customers to run more jobs in the same footprint as previous generations, enabling scientific innovation and bringing new products to market more quickly. Customers can now take advantage of up to 50 percent more cores per socket, increased processing speeds and improved energy consumption."

  • Overall world record SPEC MPIM2007 performance based on the SPECmpiM_2007 metricBest-in-class performance for SPEC MPIM2007 at 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 sockets based on the SPECmpiM_2007 metricBest-in-class performance for SPEC MPIL2007 at 8, 16, 32, 64, and 128 chips based on the SPECmpiL_2007 metricBest-in-class performance for SPEC OMPG2012 at 2 sockets based on the SPECompG_2012 metric
  • Modularity is all about giving the customer the choices to get what they need, not what the manufacture wants to offer. This means the customer can address a wide range of needs with a flexible system for applications, pure storage, etc.As needs grow and change, the customer can adapt the system based on the modular in common core platform, continually keeping pace with the evolving demands of their business. Scalability is important, but is not unique to SGI. Where it matters is that coupled with the other attributes, customers can scale up and out in precisely the way they need to keep pace with their rapidly expanding data and application requirements. Other systems require the customer to adapt to their system limitations, scale only within the constraints of their platforms, and thus limit flexibility.
