SGI has announced availability of SGI Management Center (SMC) and SGI ProPack 7, providing a single point of management across individual servers to racks to entire SGI systems. According to the company's news release, SGI ProPack 7 enables industry-leading application performance on standard Linux distributions.

The new software provides a control center and central interface for system management of SGI platforms.

"SMC includes a rich graphical user interface (GUI) that provides a single view of system health, server status, performance metrics and software images. Display options include dashboards and a broad set of metrics thumbnails to allow users to evaluate the health of their entire system at a glance. SMC is also a bare metal, high-speed provisioning engine that incorporates a highly configurable image management and versioning system. It provides full remote server control using interfaces such as SGI Roamer, Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). It is designed to be a complete system to allow system administrators significant flexibility in configuring systems to local needs. SMC interfaces directly with Altair PBS Professional to provide workload driven dynamic provisioning."
