High performance computing

IBM Power™ Systems high performance computing solutions lead the Top10 list of supercomputers in not only performance but also energy efficiency. When configured into highly scalable AIX® and Linux® clusters Power Systems offer extreme performance for demanding workloads such as computational chemistry, petroleum reservoir modeling, weather forecasting, climate modeling, and analytics.

IBM Blue Gene


IBM Blue Gene/Q delivers ultrascale performance within a standard programming environment while delivering efficiencies in power, cooling and floor-space consumption. Consistently recognized as the fastest “big data”, data intensive computing system,1 Blue Gene enables business and science to address a wide range of complex problems such as helping map the human genome, investigating medical therapies, flying airplanes, pinpointing tumors, predicting climate trends, and safeguarding nuclear arsenals. Today, with BlueGene/Q Express, a half rack configuration, this leading technology is available to a broader set of users requiring big data management that keeps them ahead of the competition.

Power servers for high performance computing


IBM Power 775 Supercomputer

The IBM Power 775 supercomputing server is designed for organizations that require a highly scalable system with extreme parallel processing performance and dense, modular packaging. Use it in clustered configurations of as few as 256 processor cores or in world-class supercomputer configurations of hundreds of thousands of processors. Combined with specialized software from IBM, this system is designed to perform and represents the latest Power technology available.
