ORLANDO, FL and MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- May 16, 2016 -- 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.

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).

SGI continues to engage with SAP to further extend UV 300H certification to 32-sockets.
