SGI Offers Latest High-Speed Interconnect Technology

Silicon Graphics (SGI) now offers 10 Gigabit (Gb) Ethernet connectivity across its product array of servers, workstations, advanced graphics systems and storage solutions. SGI is offering the new PCI-X adapter option for customers who increasingly need to transfer massive data sets between large systems, or as an ingest engine for huge I/O data streams. By increasing Ethernet bandwidth up to 10 times over today's standard interconnect speeds, SGI enables those customers to move and process data via Ethernet faster than ever before. Products now featuring 10Gb Ethernet include SGI Altix servers and superclusters, SGI Origin servers, Silicon Graphics Tezro visual workstations, Onyx visualization systems, and SGI InfiniteStorage SAN, NAS, and DLM solutions.

Customers in a broad range of advanced computing environments - including government, defense, sciences, and media - are working with ever more complex data sets. Virtual cockpits used in distributed mission training, for example, process terabytes of data in real time to produce interactive visual simulations that often are driven by multiple visualization systems and displays. With 10Gb Ethernet connectivity, transferring simulation data from one cockpit to the next, which is often required to synchronizing training environments among multiple pilots, can happen in a fraction of the time it takes over traditional Ethernet connections.

"It's standard for the 10-year ocean simulations running today to output data sets on the order of 2 terabytes," said Walt Brooks, chief of the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division. "Developers hope to improve the performance of this calculation to finish in one day. Moving this volume of data between systems can slow down the development and data analysis process. Faster LAN networks such as 10Gb Ethernet are needed to keep pace with the volume of data generated on today's supercomputing systems."

The driver for this 10Gb Ethernet technology has been optimized to balance superior throughput performance with the quality of service in error handling and other demands of mission-critical production deployments.

The 10Gb Ethernet adapter for SGI systems is available now for both 64-bit Linux and IRIX operating systems.
