IBM Spectrum Conductor V2.1 is the next evolution of IBM software defined infrastructure technology. It s a multiscale platform for new generation cloud native applications and open source framework such as Hadoop, Spark and NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Hbase, and more) which stores, analyzes and protects unstructured big data on an application-optimized converged infrastructure. IBM Spectrum Conductor is compatible with IBM Spectrum Computing, and complements IBM Spectrum Storage offerings and is part of the software defined infrastructure portfolio.
Here are five things to know about IBM Spectrum Conductor and how it enables your organization to achieve the following results:
- Eliminates silos with a multi-tenant converged application and data fabric.
IBM Spectrum Conductor has the ability to create a shared infrastructure environment that decreases the number of resources required to handle peak capacity demands while maintaining security. The multi-tenant integrated application and data fabric ensures data security. Hence users get the insights and benefits from their analytics efforts faster, and management enjoys improved cost efficiencies.
- Simplifies administration pane management and monitoring across a scale-out, distributed infrastructure.
When a cluster is running, it is important to be able to monitor and maintain the system. IBM Spectrum Conductor helps simplify management with integrated cluster and application management control tools. Administrators can see where the application services are running, monitor the status of services, and see how resources are being allocated to meet service-level objectives.
- Improves data availability with global, shared access to ensure data is available right when it’s needed.
Resource and data sharing can be significantly increased without compromising availability or security. Unlike open-source HDFS, IBM Spectrum Conductor is POSIX-compliant and provides significant storage efficiencies compared to HDFS.
- Minimizes deployment time by automating deployment of physical, virtual and containerized resources.
For most scale-out applications, performance is a function of the number of parallel compute or data resources that can be brought to bear on a problem. By consolidating applications and running them on a single shared-resource pool, IBM Spectrum Conductor helps reduce server idle time across a broad set of applications. Each application receives the resources and data it needs, when it needs them, cutting out wait times and acceleration results.
- Future proofs client data centers scaling as needed using modular building blocks.
Clients can future proof their data center with multidimensional scaling capabilities of the solution, including independent scaling of compute and storage infrastructure.
