Did you know that some of Einstein's physics calculations are well over 20 pages long? Modern researchers in the field of physics have long struggled with how to do complex calculations in less time. Now researchers at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Dartmouth report that they have been able to reduce the amount of time spent on physics calculations using IBM hardware. The UMass Dartmouth Physics department recently completed research proving POWER7 is 8x faster over Intel Xeon Harpertown and 5x over Intel Xeon Nehalem. Calculations that used to take a month to run now take less than a week. The resulting enhancements in time to perform calculations greatly speed the progress of their physics research on black holes. If only Einstein had a POWER7, just think what might have been?

Smarter computing for a smarter planet. Join IBM for the launch of an entirely new category of computing, expert integrated systems
On April 11th, you're invited to join IBM online for the launch of an entirely new category of computing, expert integrated systems. IBM will be introducing expert integrated systems featuring both hardware and software solutions. This new computing category is expected to help change the way you deploy, manage and fund IT.
Some of us know all too well how painful IT-related challenges can be. Sometimes it seems that every project is underfunded with limited resources to make it all work. With overburdened budgets and staffs that can mean that precious time is wasted . Organizations can spend billions of dollars on maintenance instead of innovation. IBM has heard from, you, our customers, that it was time to fundamentally rethink how we design and build systems. That's why we've been working to develop expert integrated systems to offer a solution that offers the flexibility of a general-purpose system with the simplicity of an appliance.
We're hoping that new integrated systmes designed by IBM can get you up and running in as little as a few hours, cutting months off deployment times of new application projects. It’s all based on patterns of expertise, that you deploy as quickly and easily as you download and use apps on a smartphone. IBM's goal is to help customers acheive faster system set-up and application deployment time. Register for our virtual event to get all the details and bring your questions. We want to hear from you!
