The new intelligent resource and workload management software, called IBM Spectrum Computing is designed to make it easier for organizations to extract full value from data to accelerate performance-intensive analytics or machine learning. This technology can be used across industries to help sequence genomes for improved cancer treatment, or for engineers to design a championship-winning Formula One race car or bankers to personalize financial services to attract new customers.

The IBM Spectrum Computing platform offers new cognitive, resource-aware scheduling policies that help increase the utilization of existing compute resources, controlling costs while speeding results for high performance computing, big data analytics, new generation applications and open source frameworks, such as Hadoop and Apache Spark. Here are 5 things to know about IBM Spectrum Computing:
- Transforms static computing resources into flexible high performance clouds.
IBM Spectrum Computing cloud solutions for high performance cloud transform static computing resources into flexible private, hybrid and public clouds that can be shared, remotely managed and easily provisioned to support the demands of technical computing, analytics, Hadoop and other compute- and data-intensive workloads.
- Analyzes data and extracts insights quickly and economically.
IBM Spectrum Computing resource scheduling software employs optimization techniques that allow sub-millisecond response and fast provisioning for a variety of workloads. Thus, short-running jobs spend a smaller percentage of time in the provisioning and deprovisioning steps, giving a higher useful work-to-overhead ratio. IBM Spectrum Symphony has a high job throughput rate that allows more than 17,000 tasks to be submitted per second.
- Provides workload management tools designed to address your needs.
IBM Spectrum Computing provides a comprehensive set of workload management capabilities; all designed to work together to address your needs.
- Helps remove the complexity out of cluster management.
IBM Spectrum Computing helps remove the complexity out of the cluster management. It simplifies the entire cluster management process from the initial deployment to final production, thus significantly improve the time for cluster readiness. The automated provisioning, maintenance, and monitoring capabilities bring productivity to the IT administrators and help improve overall system performance while optimizing the resource utilization.

- Delivers a comprehensive set of capabilities designed to work together to address your high-performance cloud needs.
IBM Spectrum Computing offers a comprehensive set of cloud capabilities designed to work together to address your high-performance cloud needs to help you deliver application-ready clusters in the cloud.
IBM Spectrum Computing assists organizations with consolidating data center infrastructure and sharing resources across on premise, cloud or hybrid environments. IBM Spectrum Computing includes three new software solutions: IBM Spectrum Conductor, IBM Spectrum LSF and IBM Spectrum Symphony. The expanded software-defined computing portfolio complements the IBM Spectrum Storage software-defined storage family. The IBM Spectrum portfolio provides clients with a unique set of software-defined infrastructure capabilities.
