SGI enables enterprises to meet their computing and storage requirements at a lower total cost of ownership and provides them greater deployment flexibility and scalability.
SGI has been supplying SGI® Rackable™ clusters for Hadoop since the technology’s first commercial deployments into the major internet properties and have pushed the envelope in Hadoop performance and scale. SGI holds the world record for the TeraSort data processing and analysis benchmark, set in October 2011 and the largest Hadoop clusters installation (40,000 nodes) in existence today.
SGI’s Design-to-Order offering allows us to deliver Hadoop clusters optimized for specific customer requirements in data flows and analyses, data ingest, power, density, price/performance, and/or total cost of ownership (TCO). Through SGI Management Center (including power optimization), SGI also excels in providing ease of use and manageability for very large configurations, offering a range of options allowing customers to run Hadoop within a data center power envelope deriving the maximum operations per watt for their applications.
Ultimately, it has been our customers’ success that has proven the SGI value proposition as truly compelling.
