Intel-powered HPCs propel SGI to success

SGI’s Intel-powered HPCs sold to Down Under Geo to aid in gains in the rate of discovery and analysis for oil and gas exploration

  • SGI provided Down Under Geo with Intel-powered High Performance Compute Clusters to aid them in Oil & Gas Exploration.
  • Intel and SGI will continue working together in the future to provide machines for industries such as Energy, Government & Academic Research, Digital Content Creation & Manufacturing.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 5, 2015 – SGI has recently come off a win with Down Under Geo (DUG), providing a SGI® Pyramid 2U Phi Cluster to DUG to aid in their oil and gas exploration.

In their latest collaboration, Intel, SGI and DUG worked together to deploy a customized SGI Rackable High Performance Computing (HPC) environment which included 3,800 Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors making it one of the largest commercial deployments of Xeon Phi coprocessors. This deployment provides DUG with an added compute capacity of up to six peak petaflops.

The custom solution helps significantly accelerates DUG’s turnaround times for processing seismic data, in turn benefitting DUG customers by assisting to bring oil and gas projects on-line earlier, potentially saving them millions of dollars.

“We’re very pleased to add Down Under Geo to our growing list of clients with high performance computing needs. SGI has been in the industry for 33 years and are one of the top names in the business. However, this sale wouldn’t have been possible without the technology from Intel. We’ve worked together for many years and are eager to continue working with them to create more reliable and powerful high performance computers,” said Chee Uoon Teh, Chief Technical Officer, SGI Malaysia.

SGI started using Intel processors in 2001 when it put together the Workstation which ran on the Intel® Itanium® chipset. The company then went on to create the world’s most scalable Linux-based computer in 2003, which supported up to 64 processors in a single system node. Today, with the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor technology, SGI’s new generation advanced Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) system, UV 2000, scales up to 4,096 Cores threads and 64TB of shared memory as a single system.

“We’re excited about working together with SGI and DUG to create robust machines and look forward to providing them with more powerful and scalable processors to utilize in the coming years,” said Sumner Lemon, Country Manager, Intel Malaysia and Singapore.

In Malaysia, the Xeon Phi processor has been widely adopted by industries such as biotechnology, manufacturing and numerical weather prediction.

SGI has future plans to continue working with their HPC customer base in universities and research institutions in Malaysia. SGI also plans to reach out to new enterprises from other industries such as Financial Services, Telecommunications and Manufacturing.
