With today's unveiling of new rack-mounted SGI Altix 330 server and SGI InfiniteStorage S330 storage array, Silicon Graphics announced it has successfully driven the price of its acclaimed high-performance server, visualization and storage solutions to unprecedented price points.

"But by leveraging its high-end architectures to distil mid-range, volume-priced models, SGI is establishing a significant differentiation point in a rapidly growing marketplace increasingly defined by commoditization."
