Silicon Graphics Supplies Servers, Workstations To Novartis Worldwide


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--Silicon Graphics announced that it will supply Novartis divisions around the world with Origin high-performance servers and Octane graphics workstations. Silicon Graphics will supply Novartis with advanced computing systems, especially Origin2000 servers, to support Novartis's data-intensive computing environments.

Silicon Graphics said that growing database serving capabilities, high-performance computing, and web-serving requirements in life sciences research can be met by the Origin2000's modular CC-NUMA server line, scaling in simple building blocks from one- to 128-processor configurations.

Octane workstations allow science-based companies to take control of larger, more complex and growing datasets on the desktop, Silicon Graphics claimed. The system architecture, with high-performance single and dual processors, allows Octane simultaneously to tackle such complex tasks as design and analysis, molecular modeling, datamining, and visualization.
