High Performance Computing (HPC) for the cognitive era is about systems that can augment human intelligence rather than simply run simulations and visualizations. It’s about systems that blur the line between HPC and big data. It’s about open ecosystems because one size does not fit all. IBM HPC is designed for your workflows and helps you achieve faster time to solution.

Open systems designed for the intersection of HPC and Big Data

Although HPC and big data analytics are converging, traditional HPC clusters are built for another era—meaning they are designed for data or compute, but not both. This leads to the inability to deliver adequate performance and scalability, along with I/O bottlenecks and network latency when moving large datasets—all of which slows down real-time insights. IBM HPC clusters deliver more when they are built with Power Systems—so you can easily handle demanding workloads and high performance data analytics.

Software Defined Infrastructure for flexible deployment & superior analytics insight

New tools and analytical frameworks are enabling more cost effective analysis of data. Software-defined infrastructure helps you seamlessly bridge between HPC, analytics and big data applications, as well as rapidly deploy open source frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark. This accelerates time to results and reduces costs while also delivering IT services in the most efficient way possible.
