High-performance computing at IBM
High-performance computing (HPC) is the process of aggregating computing power in a way that delivers much higher performance than a typical desktop or workstation when solving large computational problems. Advanced solutions that require a lot of research can now be delivered faster than ever before through the use of high-performance computing technology. We believe HPC holds the key to unlocking the next big ground-breaking innovation that can change the world for the better.
HPC is used in a broad range of sectors, such as life sciences and genomics, computer-aided engineering and manufacturing, electronic design automation and semiconductors, and financial services.
The “supercomputing concept” was first introduced by IBM in the early 1920’s in the United States. IBM tabulators were the first step in helping achieve superior computational peak performance. Since then, IBM has continued to be at the forefront of delivering HPC innovation through systems, software, and services.
Cloud-based high-performance computing solutions at IBM Think 2019
A range of cloud-based HPC solutions will be featured at the IBM Think 2019 conference in San Francisco, February 12-15, 2019. I recommend attending the following sessions:
IBM Cloud provides significant capabilities that enable organizations to process large volumes of data quickly and economically. These capabilities include a wide range of compute options, high-speed data transfer, storage that expands to exabytes, and industry-leading workload management software to help clients meet workload demands.
