  ScaleMP Announces SGI Customer Acquisition Plan

   Company and Partners to Offer Faster, Larger and Lower-Cost Systems than
                            Quoted SGI® Proposals

Business Wire

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- May 8, 2013

ScaleMP™, the leader in virtualization solutions for high-end computing,
announced today that, together with its technology and channel partners, it
will offer a competitive solution for any customer holding a SGI®
shared-memory UV™ quote. The competitive solution will provide 20 percent more
memory, 20 percent greater performance at 20 percent lower price than an
eligible SGI (NASDAQ: SGI) quote.

This limited-time offer provides customers with a single source for solutions
based on vSMP Foundation software and cutting-edge hardware. With support for
up to 256 TB of RAM and 32,768 CPUs, ScaleMP solutions provide the world’s
largest shared-memory systems. ScaleMP solutions support scalable system
backplane with over 500 Gbps (bidirectional), which is more than twice what is
available on other shared-memory systems. The scalable backplane allows for
active-backplane redundancy, preventing interconnect failure from hurting
system stability.

Solutions based on vSMP Foundation allow choice of hardware platform and are
available based on the most recent Intel and AMD processors. vSMP Foundation
will also support Intel’s upcoming Ivy Bridge processors at launch time.

“ScaleMP is very excited to be teaming with our technology partners to provide
the industry with more affordable and better performing shared-memory systems.
With the growing demand for shared-memory and large-memory applications, we
are looking to increase the penetration of software-defined systems into the
broader IT ecosystem,” said Shai Fultheim, CEO and founder of ScaleMP.
