Silicon Graphics (SGI) has implemented Arc Internet Map Server on IRIX, the operating system for SGI’s top-of-the-range servers.

ESRI and SGI have ported ArcIMS and ArcSDE, along with Oracle database support, to SGI’s IRIX operating system. ESRI president Jack Dangermond said, “ArcIMS and ArcSDE have now been extended to support IRIX, one of the industry’s most robust and mature versions of UNIX.”


SGI VP Desh Urs added, “With ESRI ArcIMS and ArcSDE software running on IRIX, organizations building GIS applications will now be able to take advantage of IRIX’s scalability, high-performance data management, real-time applications support, and media streaming.”

One million users

ArcIMS and ArcSDE run on the SGI IRIX 6.5 operating system. ESRI claims over one million users for its GIS and mapping software.
