SGI (Silicon Graphics)

SGI (Silicon Graphics) is a leading manufacturer of high-performance computing, data management, and visualization products. SGI workstations and servers are optimized for tasks related to computer graphics processing. The company's products target five key market segments: manufacturing, life sciences, energy, government, and media. Jim Clark (also the founder of Netscape) started SGI in 1982, as Silicon Graphics Inc. The company switched to the use of the acronym SGI in 1999. SGI is based in Mountain View, California, and has offices worldwide.

SGI recently announced a new technology called Visual Area Networking that allows users to interact with advanced visualization programs from any device over standard networks. Using the company's OpenGL Vizserver 2.0 software, users and groups of users will be able to access programs on supercomputers. This is intended to enable users to visualize and work with data as if their systems had advanced capabilities, no matter what their actual situation.
