High performance computing: the future of data analytics

As performance demands grow, organizations are struggling to manage larger, more complex data sets and analytics workloads. With increasingly sophisticated machine learning and deep learning opportunities, accelerated infrastructure is essential. High performance computing (HPC) aggregates clusters of computers to provide the computing power to advance AI and to solve the biggest challenges in business, medical, science and engineering industries.

Watch Red Bull Racing unlock the full potential of HPC

A powerful, flexible and efficient path to data insights

IBM’s HPC solutions are designed to augment human intelligence rather than simply run simulations and visualizations. The goal: to implement systems that blur the line between HPC and AI and to provide open ecosystems, because one size does not fit all.

Pure processing power

With the ability to scale vertically and horizontally, and to share RAM across CPUs and GPUs, LinuxONE offers the flexibility needed to handle variable computational requirements while the Power Systems AC922 enables fast deployment of accelerated databases.

Storage that scales and flexes with your data needs

Effective HPC and analytics workloads require the ability to form and access large data lakes and content repositories, with scalable performance and capacity to avoid bottlenecks.

Simplified software for effective workload management

Software that enhances the user and administrator experience with easy deployment, maximum uptime and performance at scale is critical to success with HPC. Spectrum LSF makes it possible.

HPC solutions

IBM provides a range of hardware, software and storage products that work in conjunction to provide computational power, workload efficiency and ease of management – the capabilities you need to advance into the future of HPC.

Explore the best server for enterprise AI

With performance 3.7x greater when running models on Chainer and 3.8x with Caffe, the IBM Power Systems AC922 offers the fastest way to deploy accelerated databases and deep learning frameworks and is backed by legendary IBM enterprise-class support.

Speed deployment and boost performance

Ideal for organizations incorporating machine learning and deep learning into their HPC workflows, IBM PowerAI software facilitates rapid deployments with outstanding performance and scalability. 

Control costs and optimize resources

SDI accelerates time to results and reduces costs while delivering IT services in the most efficient way possible. It enables you to bridge HPC, analytics and big data applications, as well as rapidly deploy open-source frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark.

Simplify HPC and make management a breeze

Leverage comprehensive workload management to accelerate research, design and other high-performance simulations by 30%, improve productivity and deliver faster results. IBM Spectrum LSF delivers a competitive advantage and resilience at scale, all while controlling costs.

Prepare for growth and scale as needed

LinuxONE servers are architected for extreme vertical and horizontal scaling to enable parallel processing, optimized for open-source databases and on-premises analytics, and secured with a unique multitenant architecture and pervasive encryption.

Meet peak demands and speed time to market

Meet new and burst peak HPC and HPDA workload demands with IBM software-defined infrastructure delivered as a service in the IBM Cloud. Get faster time to market and simplified workload management so that your engineers and researchers can focus on their jobs rather than managing IT.


The end of the homogenous data center is here

IDC expects that we are approaching the end of the homogeneous data center because processors other than the classic x86 are bridging the performance gap that AI applications have revealed.

New techniques for HPC with IBM PowerAI

Traditional HPC algorithms are no longer able to solve every problem without massive deployments. New approaches are required. Machine learning and artificial intelligence can now be rapidly deployed for all kinds of workloads with PowerAI.

The next milestone for HPC

As increasingly challenging workloads push system demands to the limit, IBM has partnered with other industry leaders to form the OpenPOWER Foundation, dedicated to stewarding the Power CPU architecture into the next generation.
