The residency team is pleased to announce the draft of this publication. The focus of this book is to provide you with architectural and technical details on the IBM high-performance computing (HPC) solution with the IBM AC922. There are additional components of the solution described throughout the publication. All of them working together in this clustered environment, deliver a powerful supercomputing solution to help you enable discoveries across multiple industries.
This books contains the following topics:
Part 1. Planning
Chapter 1. Introduction to IBM high-performance computing
Chapter 2. IBM Power System AC922 for high-performance computing overview
Chapter 3. Software stack
Chapter 4. Reference architecture
Part 2. Deployment
Chapter 5. Nodes and software deployment
Chapter 6. Cluster Administration and Storage Tools (CAST)
Part 3. Application development
Chapter 7. Compilation, execution, and application development
Chapter 8. Running parallel software, performance enhancement, and scalability testing
Chapter 9. Measuring and tuning applications
Appendix A. Additional material
The publication provides among others a chapter to understand the reference architecture of the solution from small to medium to large clustered environments. The idea is to describe to you that there are different supercomputing solution sizes that can help you with your challenging problems.
The overall idea of the publication is to share with you that the IBM supercomputing solution powered by the IBM AC922 can provide you with the computing capacity, capability, and power for your discoveries.
