SGI Surpasses 600 Terabyte Milestone for Total Systems Running SAP HANA

May 16, 2016

ORLANDO, Fla. and MILPITAS, Calif., May 16 — SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), a global leader in high-performance solutions for compute, data analytics and data management, announced that deployments of the SGI UV 300H servers as a single-node (scale-up) system now provide in total over 600 Terabytes of in-memory computing capacity to organizations running the SAP HANA platform. SGI also announced that the SGI UV 300H is now SAP-certified for SAP HANA under general availability for up to 20-sockets and 15 Terabytes of shared memory to run SAP S/4HANA and other transactional SAP applications on SAP HANA, enabling data analysis in real time at unparalleled scale. SGI will feature the SGI UV 300H in booth #445 at SAPPHIRE NOW beginning on May 17 in Orlando, Florida.

These announcements reflect SGI’s strong growth in high-performance data analytics and continuing innovation to help enterprises achieve greater insight and gain competitive advantage with SAP HANA.

Announcement Highlights

  • More than 75 single-node SGI UV 300H systems have been installed in organizations to enable data analytics in real time with SAP HANA and provide in total over 600 Terabytes of in-memory computing capacity — reflecting capacity growth in excess of 200% over the past seven months.
  • Collectively the systems have performed with 99.99% uptime, with many configured in high availability and disaster recovery configurations to provide “five 9s” (99.999%) application availability.
  • Previously SAP-certified under controlled availability, SGI UV 300H 12-, 16- and 20-socket system configurations are now SAP-certified under general availability (GA). Building on GA certification at 4- and 8-sockets, SGI UV 300H is now the leader in scale-up capacity for Intel-based systems enabling real-time data analytics with SAP HANA – giving large enterprises greater ability to know when, where and how customers are buying without delay; view inventories, supply chains or financials with up to the second accuracy; and spot market changes early and adjust with precision. SGI continues to engage with SAP to further extend UV 300H certification to 32-sockets.

Technical Information

  • SGI UV 300H is a model of the SGI UV 300 supercomputer and purpose-built for SAP HANA.
  • SGI UV 300H is SAP-certified under general availability as a single-node system with 4-to 20-sockets and one to 15 Terabytes of cache-coherent shared memory and, utilizing a modular chassis architecture, scales up in 4-socket increments. The system is designed to scale up to 32-sockets and 24 Terabytes of shared memory and is awaiting further certification by SAP.
  • Featuring Intel Xeon Processor E7 v3 family, 7th-generation SGI NUMAlink technology, and pre-installed with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server or Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA, SGI UV 300H can be deployed as a fully pre-configured appliance or the SAP HANA tailored datacenter integration solution.
