Summer is just ending and Platform Computing is announcing today its second major product launch this year and since joining the IBM family. IBM has embraced Platform Computing as a key component of their newly launch Technical Computing agenda to bring HPC technologies to mainstream business companies. If you are building a cluster or grid, IBM would like you to evaluate Platform Computing as the management layer to enable a scalable, high performance application infrastructure. This is especially true as more applications become compute and data-intensive – everything from simulations, analytics, MapReduce, CAE, risk management, fraud, pricing, etc. There is also an enormous explosion in emerging growth economies for Platform Computing as well. I just returned from a two-week trip through Southeast Asia, Japan and China. These are exciting times!
Our mission continues unwavering - IBM Platform Computing is widely viewed as the cluster, grid, and HPC cloud management software of choice for technical and high performance computing (HPC) environments. We want to become a standard architecture for mainstream businesses to accelerate the time to results for high performance applications. It’s all about the applications, workload management, and resource management. Platform Computing products are used both to simplify the deployment, management, and use of small departmental clusters as well as to optimize deployment of complex applications and workloads in many of the world's largest environments (100,000+ cores).
The latest product releases and additions to the IBM Platform Computing portfolio further extend this value with; new features making the products easier to use, enhanced management features, and significant advances in scalability and performance. Read our launch article for more details and I’ve captured a few highlights below:
There is a lot of new enhancements for existing customers as well as a continued expansion of the portfolio demonstrating a solid product roadmap and commitment to continue leadership in this market. For more information, please fill in our contact form and we’ll get back to you very quickly.
