SGI UV 2000

Solve the Most Demanding Compute-Intensive Problems Part of the SGI UV server line for high performance in-memory computing, SGI UV 2000 is an advanced symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) system designed for compute-intensive, fast algorithm workloads such as CAE, genome assembly, and scientific simulations. SGI UV 2000 scales to truly extraordinary levels—up to 256 CPU sockets and 64TB of cache-coherent shared memory in a single system. Enabling such powerful in-memory computing capability is 6th generation SGI NUMAlink® ASIC technology, providing extreme bandwidth, low latency network interconnects. Equipped with an integrated MPI Offload Engine, UV 2000 can also be leveraged for distributed applications and as a “super node” for clustered high performance computing (HPC) systems. Single System Simplicity with Extreme Scalability The SGI UV 2000 features a modular chassis design that enables users to grow their system without adding complexity. A 10U chassis contains up to 16 sockets coupled with an All-to-All NUMAlink network topology. By adding additional chassis (up to four per standard 19” rack) and using an Enhanced Hypercube topology, UV 2000 can scale up to 256 sockets and 4,096 threads, all operating as a single system. It’s like running a giant workstation with lightning speed and maximum investment protection. Flexible, Open, Energy Efficient SGI UV 2000 is designed with optimum flexibility. Featuring Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 v2 processors with eight DIMMs per socket, the system’s x86 architecture delivers a high processor to memory ratio. NVIDIA® Quadro® and NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators and Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors can also be added. A choice of unmodified SUSE® Linux® Enterprise Server or Red Hat® Enterprise Linux operating systems make the UV 2000 ideal for standard ISV and open source applications as well as custom codes. And SGI’s innovative air or water cooling helps lower energy costs. High Performance Storage with Fast Access Industry-standard PCIe Gen3 expansion slots provide countless options for persistent storage with fast I/O, very-high bandwidth connectivity. For hardware, select from the entire SGI InfiniteStorage line of Storage Servers, RAID and tape libraries, as well as industry-standard 3rd party components. For storage software, leverage Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre, SGI CXFS™, or industry standard XFS® file systems, SGI XVM® volume management, SGI DMF™ tiered data management, and 3rd party backup solutions.
