RENO, Nev. -- At the Supercomputing 2007 (SC07) conference today, SGI (NASDAQ:SGIC) laid out its strategy for performance visualization. SGI(R) Visual Supercomputing(TM) tightly integrates visualization with the compute and data management stages of high-performance computing (HPC) workflows. SGI will demonstrate components of its Visual Supercomputing portfolio through November 16 in Booth 502 at SC07.
The SGI Visual Supercomputing strategy is built on a quarter-century of visualization leadership and a first-hand understanding of the challenges faced by HPC users in fields such as computer-aided engineering, advanced scientific research, physical and life sciences, product design and rendering. Many of these users seek visualization that is integrated within a solution that enables them to analyze, store and visualize their data.
Today, however, existing solutions fail to address one or more aspects of that workflow.
"Over the past few years, customers have asked SGI to provide visualization solutions that bridge the compute and data management stages of their HPC workflows, and with our new Visual Supercomputing strategy, we are doing that," said Bo Ewald, CEO, SGI. "Now, by combining our powerful compute platforms, data management solutions, industrial-strength Linux environment and carefully chosen third-party offerings, we can answer those needs. This strategy will deliver unified solutions to help organizations improve their productivity and maximize the returns on their IT investments."
