Imagine the possibilities…

Exponential growth in supercomputing clusters, the scaling of complex applications and the convergence of big data is pushing high-performance computing (HPC) to new limits. Make the most of your HPC environment and the technology that is driving the next generation of AI-focused workloads with IBM Spectrum Computing solutions. IBM Spectrum Computing delivers performance, reliability and scalability across a broad set of workloads. They range from traditional high-performance computing such as simulations to new-generation workloads including Apache Spark-based analytics, Docker container environments and deep learning frameworks.

Featuring powerful cluster virtualization capabilities, IBM Spectrum Computing dynamically shifts resources to optimize performance for the most business-critical workloads. IBM Spectrum Scale delivers highly scalable software-defined storage capacity and supreme performance for mission-critical data analytics and technical computing. IBM Spectrum Scale multi-protocol file access allows clients to transparently unify storage silos within a single namespace, including support for Hadoop environments and HDFS without requiring any changes to applications. The solution provides automated policy-based placement and migration of data across flash, disk, tape and cloud storage, helping clients to balance performance and cost.

Together these provide:

  • Simplified development and deployment of your HPC and AI workloads.
  • Faster time-to-results and insight through enhanced user experiences, streamlined operations with optimized scheduling and cluster management.
  • Accelerated data insights from a data layer with industry-leading performance for HPC and machine learning workloads.

Join us at SuperComputing 2017 booth #1525 and learn about how IBM Spectrum Solutions will help accelerate your HPC, cognitive and AI workloads. We are showcasing AI-enabled live demonstrations across our portfolio, including a preview of the new Summit Supercomputer and IBM-powered systems designed for CORAL, the collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne and Livermore, projected to deliver more than 5 times the computational performance of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s current system.
