Platform Computing of IBM

IBM® Platform ComputingTM cluster, grid and high-performance computing (HPC) cloud management software can help transform your environment to deliver results better, faster and at less expense. IBM Platform Computing products are designed to save money by making an organization’s existing infrastructure work better.

IBM Cloud Computing Performance

High-performance computing (HPC), technical applications and analytics place heavy demands on cloud computing resources. To meet these demands, IBM cloud offerings include dedicated, bare-metal servers that provide the raw horsepower and security of a non-virtualized environment, as well as private hypervisor- based virtual machines for increased economy and optimized price-performance.

Life Sciences: IBM Computing Solutions

Whether engaged in genome sequencing, drug design, product analysis or risk management, life sciences research teams need high-performance technical environments with the ability to process massive amounts of data and support increasingly sophisticated simulations and analyses. Organizations helping to find causes and cures for diseases need speed, agility and control across the clinical development lifecycle to increase productivity, foster innovation and compete more effectively.

HPC Cloud with IBM Platform Computing

The IBM® Platform ComputingTM(ii) portfolio has been driving the evolution of distributed computing and the HPC Cloud for over 20 years. Ground-breaking products such as IBM® PlatformTM LSF® were among the first to enable companies to manage distributed environments from modest clusters to massive compute farms with tens of thousands of processors handling thousands of jobs. Most recently the introduction of IBM® PlatformTM Dynamic Cluster, together with IBM® PlatformTM Cluster Manager – Advanced Edition, permits turning LSF environments into a dynamic HPC cloud.

Slidecast: IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF

“IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF takes control of data transfers to help organizations improve data throughput and lower costs by minimizing wasted compute cycles and conserving disk space. Platform Data Manager automates the transfer of data used by application workloads running on IBM Platform LSF clusters and the cloud, bringing frequently used data closer to compute resources by storing it in a smart, managed cache that can be shared among users and workloads.”

Video: HPC Solution Stack on OpenPOWER

“This demo will show the capability of IBM OpenPOWER that can be the foundation of the complicated High Performance Computing complete solution. From the HPC cluster deployment, job scheduling, system management, application management to the science computing workloads on top of them, all these components can be well constructed on top of IBM OpenPOWER platform with good usability and performance. Also this demo shows the simplicity of migrating a complete x86 based HPC stack to the OpenPOWER platform.”
