IBM Intelligent Cluster


Complex solutions—made simple by IBM

Deploying solutions for Technical Computing, High Performance Computing (HPC), Analytics and Cloud environments can place a significant burden on IT. Intelligent Cluster leverages decades of IBM experience to reduce the complexity of deployment with pre-integrated, delivered, and fully-supported solutions that match best-in-industry components with optimised solution design. With IBM Intelligent Cluster, clients can focus their efforts on maximizing business value, instead of consuming valuable resources to design, optimise, install and support the infrastructure required to meet business demands.

Best-of-industry technology, optimised solution design

Intelligent Cluster solutions feature industry-leading IBM® System x® servers, storage, software and third-party components that allow for a wide choice of technology within an integrated, delivered solution. IBM thoroughly tests and optimises each solution for reliability, interoperability and maximum performance, so clients can quickly deploy the system and get to work achieving their business goals.

Increase results through automation and built-in intelligence

Clients are expanding the use of Technical Computing and HPC to solve complex problems at a smaller scale, and smaller organisations typically lack the dedicated resources needed to deploy and manage cluster systems effectively. As an integral part of the IBM Intelligent Cluster portfolio, the IBM Platform HPC comprehensive management solution lets clients quickly put the system to work with minimal effort and skill. Platform HPC optimises resources automatically to maximise utilisation, and the easy-to-use web-based tools make application deployment and ongoing management simple.

End-to-end solutions with end-to-end support by IBM

Intelligent Cluster solutions are built, tested, delivered and installed by IBM, and supported as a single solution instead of being treated as hundreds of individual components. IBM provides single point-of-contact, solution-level support that includes both IBM and third-party components to deliver maximum system availability throughout the life of the system, so clients can spend less time maintaining systems and more time delivering results.
