SGI® Foundation

The HPE Foundation Software product consists of drivers and technical support tools and utilities designed to make SGI platforms using specific SUSE(R) Linux Enterprise Server 11, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, Red Rat(R) Enterprise Linux 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 releases run more reliably and easier to administer.

It provides base functionality required by some other SGI software products, support tools to assist in system maintenance and drivers not yet provided by the base operating systems, as well as packages that help tune systems for improved performance. By consolidating our support tools, utilities and drivers, SGI Foundation Software 2 improves product interoperability and simplifies product dependency management.

It also provides packages specifically designed to ensure the smooth operation of SAP software on qualified SGI and HPE in-memory SAP HANA appliances.
