According to HPCwire last week, IBM is expanding its Deep Computing Capacity on Demand offering with Intel’s dual- and quad-core Xeons. The processors will initially be added at IBM’s on demand center in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., but may eventually expand to its Rochester, Minn. and London, England locations.
The offering is targeted primarily at financial markets customers, who require additional, high-performance computing power to run intraday and post-trading analytics, for example. The IBM/Intel platform offers a fast, highly secure addition to companies’ computing infrastructure which can be used on a flexible basis. The solution can be purchased in increments as small as eight hours a day, five days a week.
