SGI hermit crabs over to Sunnyvale

Thanks for the memories, Mountain View

3 Big data security analytics techniques

After once dominating the Silicon Valley suburb of Mountain View, SGI has packed up and moved to Sunnyvale - the latest shift in the company's resurrection agenda.

Not too long ago, SGI owned numerous, massive complexes on either side of the central Mountain View artery Shoreline Boulevard. Those buildings have since been turned over to various organizations such as the Computer History Museum, Google and a host of start-ups. The purple coloring favored by SGI still coats a number of the structures.

Last month, SGI closed the last of its Mountain View offices - a space it shared with start-ups - and moved to 1140 E. Arques Avenue in Sunnyvale. We're told the new single story building is a nice space with a gym and plenty of room to move.

SGI shifted to Sunnyvale as yet another cost saving measure taken since it emerged from bankruptcy. The hardware maker is in the midst of shifting its business to focus on the broader corporate data center market rather than just high-end graphics customers.

Mountain View has claimed many stars over the years, starting with the original Shockley Labs - considered by many to be the birthplace of Silicon Valley. The likes of Netscape, Verisign, Fairchild Semiconductor, Veritas and PayPal have called or still do call Mountain View home.

SGI was by far the most aggressive Mountain View resident, crawling into so many flashy buildings. Many of the old SGI structures are marked by space age facades and that damn purple.

Now, however, Google is the unquestioned king of The View. So, City Hall won't be suffering to much from SGI's departure. ®
