The journey begins with “What if?”

AI, deep learning, and data analytics workloads are driving an ever-growing set of data-intensive challenges that can only be met with accelerated infrastructure. That’s why at IBM, HPC 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 AI. And it’s about open ecosystems because one size does not fit all.

From here to AI, your journey starts now

Across industries, AI demands specialized, high-performing infrastructure. Until today, an effective solution had not yet emerged, forcing experimentation with different strategies. But the new IBM Power Systems enable cutting edge AI innovation that data scientists need with the dependability IT requires. With 3.7x better performance 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—all with legendary IBM enterprise-class support.

New techniques for HPC with IBM PowerAI

Traditional HPC algorithms are no longer able to feasibly 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. IBM is a leader in machine learning, deep-learning, and AI techniques applied to computing. Just ask Watson and you’ll see what we’re talking about.

Software Defined Infrastructure: flexible deployment, superior analytics insight

New tools and analytical frameworks are enabling more cost-effective analysis of data. Software defined infrastructure (SDI) 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.

Software for superior workflow
optimization and productivity

Leverage powerful workload management for demanding HPC environments to improve productivity, accelerate research and design, and deliver faster time to results. IBM Spectrum LSF delivers a competitive advantage and resilience at scale all while controlling costs.

High performance hybrid cloud services
for HPC

Quickly and economically meet new and burst peak HPC and HPDA workload demands with IBM Software Defined Infrastructure delivered as a service in the IBM Cloud. This gives you faster time to market, simplified workload management, and enhanced productivity because your engineers and researchers can focus on their jobs rather than managing IT.
