The residency team invites you to download and read the first IBM Redbooks publication on IBM Platform Computing Solutions.
This IBM Platform Computing Solutions Redbooks publication is the first book to describe each of the available offerings that are part of the IBM portfolio of Cloud, analytics, and High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions for our clients. This publication delivers descriptions of the available offerings from IBM Platform Computing that address challenges for our clients in each industry. We include a few implementation and testing scenarios with selected solutions.
Chapter 1. Introduction to IBM Platform Computing
Chapter 2. Technical computing software portfolio
Chapter 3. Planning
Chapter 4. IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility (LSF) product family
Chapter 5. IBM Platform Symphony
Chapter 6. IBM Platform High Performance Computing
Chapter 7. IBM Platform Cluster Manager Advanced Edition
Appendix A. IBM Platform Computing Message Passing Interface
Appendix B. Troubleshooting examples
Appendix C. IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility add-ons and examples
Appendix D. Getting started with KVM provisioning
This project will update previous IBM Platform Computing Redbooks publications SG24-8073 and SG24-8081 - Some areas of focus are:
• Include messaging around synergies across the IBM product portfolio and major use cases
• Reflect the new IBM Platform Computing cloud service as part of the Platform Symphony and LSF messaging
• Reflect significant new LSF add-ons (Hadoop Connector, MapReduce Accelerator, Dynamic Cluster etc ..)
• Reflect significant new Platform Symphony add-ons (Co-processor harvesting add-on, planned application service controller add-on)
• Cover support for updated Intel and Power platforms
In addition to updating the IBM Platform Computing publications, the residency team will explore, document, and create content with the following topics:

Good morning IBM Redbooks readers and followers. I hope all your endeavors are going well, and I wish you success closing the first quarter of 2018.
In 2018, I am looking forward to delivering an updated technical publication on IBM high-performance computing leveraging the IBM Redbooks residency program. Over the last five years, my teams have delivered information about IBM high-performance computing solutions by way of the following publications:
High-performance computing has become a synonym solution to many clients, and lately many commercial or technical computing client have implemented some sort of high-performance computing cluster in their data center as they look to bring in clusters with faster processors (CPU) and combining them with fast GPUs to offload applications and improve time to market with their products.
IBM high-performance computing solutions combines the best of IBM hardware, software, file system, tools, open source components, networking, and others to bring to you a robust solution to help you solve challenging business problems.
I encourage you to look at the upcoming Implementing an IBM High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster Solution on IBM Power System AC922 residency (http://w3.itso.ibm.com/residencies/PW-8401-R01) and submit your nomination. Your participation is important to the success of IBM Redbooks. Moreover, if you cannot submit your nomination, send me feedback on what you want to see within the final publication.
If you have not yet signed up to receive the IBM Redbooks newsletter with information on the latest publications, blogs, videos, and more, see the following website: https://ibm.co/2pmD9Sb.
