Hardware SGI has once again achieved top ranking with more Top 25 ratings--across all categories--than any other vendor in the recently released IDC Balanced Rating benchmark. Designed by analyst firm IDC to rate expected sustained performance on real-world supercomputing applications, the report verifies the critical need for high-productivity computing capabilities to meet the current requirements of technical compute environments. SGI attributes this high ranking to its unique SGI® NUMAflexTM shared-memory architecture and optimized operating and development environment.

Highlights from the newest rankings include the following:

  • SGI leads with the most systems in the Top 25 across all of the seven categories ranked.
  • SGI submitted the most powerful computer in both the Single System Capability and Enterprise categories.
  • SGI is the only vendor to have systems in the Top 25 of all categories delineated by IDC.
  • SGI represents nearly one-quarter of the systems rated in the Top 25 of the respective categories submitted by nine vendors.
The IDC Balanced Rating report is among several recent industry statements indicating the change towards measuring high-productivity over theoretical peak performance. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is also emphasizing productivity over unattainable theoretical performance as essential for a new generation of scalable, high-performance computing systems.
