Provides maximum flexibility for compute and data management applications
Technical computing firm SGI has introduced SGI Modular InfiniteStorage, an integrated server and storage platform designed to provide Cloud and data storage customers with the maximum flexibility for compute and data management applications.
SGI Modular InfiniteStorage platform will be available as either SGI Modular InfiniteStorage Server (SGI MIS Server) or SGI Modular InfiniteStorage JBOD (SGI MIS JBOD) storage products, for functional scalability in diverse data environments.
The company claims the new release is ideal for cloud computing and other IT storage management environments that require data and compute to be tightly coupled.
In addition, SGI MIS Server includes eight drive bricks and two motherboards, for up to 216TB and four 1.8 to 2.9 GHz processors in a single 4U server chassis. For additional capacity, an SGI MIS JBOD can be added, which packs nine drive bricks for up to 243TB of disk capacity into each additional 4U enclosure.
SGI storage engineering vice-president Jose Reinoso said SGI has always been focused on building products that push the envelope to help customers solve very large data problems.
"SGI Modular InfiniteStorage is a solution that enables them to have exactly the system they need today, with the ability to scale and adapt it to where their business takes them tomorrow," said Reinoso.
