SGI servers

Silicon Graphics Inc. of Mountain View, Calif., is looking to expand beyond its traditional market of high-end servers and workstations. The company has introduced a number of new Altix servers aimed at a wider set of potential users.

The Altix XE series of servers use dual-core Intel Xeon processors and are available in both a 1U (XE210) and 2U (XE240) chassis.

The company also released a mid-range blade server, the SGI Altix 450 which runs dual-core Intel Itanium 2 processors (and borrows a design from its higher-priced brethren, the Altix 4700). The Altix 450 is suited to enterprise resource planning and other enterprise information management systems, while the Altix XE could be used for systems development, said Eugene Gray, SGI's government and defense market manager.
