The IBM® Platform™ Symphony is an enterprise-class grid manager for running distributed application services and big data analytics on a scalable, shared, heterogeneous grid. It accelerates dozens of parallel applications, for faster results and better utilization of all available resources.
Platform Symphony can reallocate over 1,000 compute engines per second to different workloads depending on policies and priorities you define. This translates into better application performance, better utilization and an ability to respond quickly to business-critical demands.
The Advanced Edition of Platform Symphony includes an Apache Hadoop-compatible MapReduce implementation optimized for low latency, reliability and resource sharing. Unlike the open source solution which has no capability to re-start failed services automatically, this function is built into Platform Symphony's MapReduce implementation, delivering improved reliability.
