SGI's Strategy to Drive Advances in Grid Computing

Building on its long history of innovation in grid computing, Silicon Graphics ( NYSE: SGI ) today announced that it continues to drive new advances in the rapidly growing grid movement with several new compute, storage and visualization products. Recent SGI product introductions mark the latest in SGI's long track record of contributions to grid computing standards bodies and at university, government, and commercial sites.

"SGI technologies and development efforts have been decisive in shaping some of the most important innovations in grid computing, and many of the world's largest grid installations are powered by SGI," said Walter Stewart, business development manager for Grid, SGI. "Our vision of the grid is to give universal access to resources capable of processing, managing, and interacting with big data. With every new product introduction, we push that vision even further, revealing how the benefits of grid stretch far beyond shared compute cycles. The result is a collaborative environment that crosses platforms, organizations and geographies."
