SGI and Coral8 Team Up to provide Continuous, Actionable Insight for Government, Defense and Intelligence

Alliance Boosts SGI Real-Time Visual Complex Event Processing Solution

SUNNYVALE and mountain view, Calif. - Oct. 20, 2008 -
Silicon Graphics, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGIC) and Coral8, Inc. today announced a strategic alliance to integrate and package Coral8’s complex event processing (CEP) software with SGI® Altix® servers. The new agreement makes the Coral8 Engine a core part of a new real-time, visual CEP capability from Silicon Graphics.

“Coral8 and SGI are bringing powerful new data analysis software and solutions that offer rapid implementation, extremely high throughput rates, and flexible alerting mechanisms to a marketplace hungry for such solutions,” said Terry Cunningham, CEO at Coral8. “The Coral8 Engine and SGI Altix both meet the reliability and availability requirements of defense and intelligence environments, while meeting the need for scalable processing and to analyze the ever growing volumes of real-time data.”

The SGI platform combines acclaimed SGI® compute and visualization capabilities with the Coral8 Engine to:

  • Enable intuitive, visual analysis of complex data culled from multiple sources
  • Lead to unprecedented visibility and situational awareness of people, infrastructures, communications, facilities and vehicle movement
  • Give decision-makers a 360-degree view of complex events
  • Monitor key thresholds to alert leaders to potential threats in time to take action
“Continuous surveillance, analysis and alerting are essential to real-time mission-critical operations, as rapidly growing data volumes make it increasingly more difficult to turn information into actionable insight,” said Robert Robbins, director of Defense and Strategic Systems at SGI. “This new platform, together with our relationship with Coral8, will help Government, Defense and Homeland Security leaders make faster, more informed decisions -- decisions that might spell the difference between success or failure, and even life or death."

“SGI systems’ ability to handle massive amounts of shared addressable memory make them particularly well suited to high-performance analysis of large data sets,” said Richard Dracott, general manager, High Performance Computing, Intel. “The SGI CEP solution takes advantage of this capability for real-time analysis of complex data streams to identify significant events where immediate action may be required.”

More on the SGI CEP platform:
  • The SGI CEP solution has been optimized for Intel® Itanium® processors, which enable applications to take maximum advantage of the high-throughput, shared-memory SGI Altix architecture.
  • Outstanding performance has also been demonstrated on SGI Intel® x86 processor systems, including SGI® Altix® XE and SGI® Altix® ICE servers.
