SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — NASA has turned to SGI (NASDAQ: SGIC) for a large-scale high-performance computing (HPC) cluster and storage solution to support computational work essential to aeronautics research.
Within its Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), NASA faces rapidly escalating demand from scientists for computer time and associated resources to store and manage the results of their computational analyses. To meet that need, the agency acquired an SGI(R) Altix(R) ICE blade system powered by 4,096 Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor cores and 4 Terabytes (TB) of memory. NASA also purchased a new SGI(R) InfiniteStorage 10000 solution capable of managing 240TB of data — an amount three times larger than the entire print collection of the Library of Congress.
