IBM Platform Computing

Integrate Hadoop, Spark and born-on–the-cloud apps
on a shared services infrastructure

Maximise the utilisation and performance of your distributed computing environment

Do you need to run more simulations or analyses in less time? Are you looking for new ways to optimise resource utilisation while containing costs? You need to maximise the potential of your infrastructure to accelerate your analytics, HPC, Hadoop and born-on-the-cloud applications at any scale, extract insight from your data and get higher quality products to market faster. With intelligent workload management and policy-driven resource scheduling, IBM Platform Computing enables you to deploy an agile shared services environment that speeds time to results and decreases infrastructure costs by optimising resource utilisation. Now even faster, with more flexibility and scalability to over 150,000 cores, IBM can help you optimise your distributed computing environment, whether it’s a small departmental cluster, a multi-site grid or a high performance cloud.

Nuance tackles massive data growth with scale-out storage. Watch the video (00:02:09)

Nuance Communications develops innovative voice recognition technology. One of their challenges is the large amount of data (600 TB a day, 20 million jobs per month) going into their high performance grid. Nuance implemented IBM Spectrum Scale to efficiently manage this data growth and integrate both file and object storage technologies.

CreDist, an IBM partner, provides high performance cloud services to the Japanese semiconductor and automotive industries. While reducing the time to job submission by 80% and significantly increasing productivity, CreDist helps engineers focus on creating new products and not on HPC infrastructure.

  • Our clients speak...


    “(Platform) Analytics is one of the most significant IT investments that we have made. We needed the IBM solution to deliver the HPC utilisation required to help our research teams generate results rapidly, meet their publication deadlines and, ultimately, secure new funding.”

    - Dr. Peter Clapham, Principal Systems Administrator, Informatics Systems Group, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute

    “Thanks to the IBM Platform Computing Cloud Service, Aeromines is realising our vision of offering secure, cost-effective access to HPC resources.”

    - Elie Hachem, Founder of Aeromines and Head of the Computing and Fluids Research Group at CEMEF Mines ParisTech

    “Without IBM (Spectrum Scale and Spectrum Protect) , the PetaLibrary would simply not be possible.”

    - Peter Ruprecht, Senior HPC Analyst, University of Colorado Boulder

    “Platform HPC software makes this a reality – you can simply request, for example, 100 cores and 1 TB of memory, and the software provisions the environment automatically. And when you’ve finished with it, the resources are returned to the pool.”

    - Professor John Bancroft, Project Director of the Hartree Centre
