CUNY Selects SGI & ComnetCo for Graph Theory Research

Posted by on Feb 17, 2015 in Servers | 0 comments

The City University of New York (CUNY) is upgrading their HPC infrastructure with a UV 300™ to provide its university researchers with the computational power needed to solve complex graph theory problems. SGI’s UV™ advanced symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems accelerate the pace of innovation and insight and eliminate complexity. Building upon 20 years of in-memory computing expertise and utilizing SGI NUMAlink® interconnect technology, these Linux-based servers deliver cache coherent in-memory computing to address the most compute- and data-intensive workloads.

Their UV 300™ system will be named after Kenneth Appel, a CUNY alumnus who, in 1976 with colleague Wolfgang Haken, solved the four-color theorem in graph topology, proving that any two-dimensional map, can be filled in with four colors without any adjacent “countries” sharing the same color. This was the first major theorem to be proved using a computer.  For more information check out the press release below-
