Platform LSF handles the scheduling intelligently, boosting overall performance and utilization.

—Michael Kazda, Senior Software Engineer, IBM EDA

Business Challenge story

To create advanced IBM® POWER® processors, IBM EDA virtually tests designs to find and fix bugs before fabrication. How could it test complex chips more rigorously without adding compute resources?

Transformation

Deployed IBM Platform™ LSF® and IBM Platform RTM to optimize job scheduling on its high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, enabling more efficient use of resources and shorter run-times.

Benefits

Millions of dollars saved by resolving design problems before fabrication; 10 percent higher utilization enables more intensive testing on the same hardware; 10x faster scheduling cuts time-to-market.
