    “The Platform Computing partnership goes from strength to strength year on year.”


    - Steve Nevey, Business Development Manager - Red Bull Technology

    “Platform Computing came to us as a true innovation partner, not a supplier of technology, but a partner who was able to understand our problems and provide appropriate solutions to us, and work with us to continuously improve the performance of our system.”


    - Steve Nevey, Business Development Manager, Red Bull Technology

    “One of Platform Computing’s strengths is its support team which you don’t necessarily get with those from other companies. We can turn to Platform Computing for help when something doesn’t work and they are very responsive, no matter the time of the day.”


    - Nathan Sykes, CFD Team Leader, Red Bull Technology

    “Platform LSF was the perfect fit for our user community. Not only did it make it incredibly easy to move and schedule jobs, but it also meant that we could very quickly increase the utilisation of new resources as and when they were needed. This could be up to as much as 100 per cent in just five or six weeks.”


    - Dr. Marek Michalewicz, Director of computational research centre, A*Star

    “Platform LSF is the scheduler of choice for many organisations in Singapore, so we were aware of the benefits it could offer to A*STAR.”


    - Dr. Marek Michalewicz, Director of computational research centre, A*Star

    "With Platform HPC, the master node is aware of resource demands of the jobs queued and what each node is doing. It will power down those nodes not being used, aside from keeping about 5-10 percent available at all times. When usage increases, the master node powers on what’s needed within a couple minutes."


    - Chris Collins, Head of Research and Specialist Computing Support, University of East Anglia

    "We don’t have to do as much work when releasing a new application or do as much new coding. Platform’s software was a clear leader from the beginning of the process."


    - Chris Collins, Head of Research and Specialist Computing Support, University of East Anglia

    “The Platform Computing partnership goes from strength to strength year on year.”

Systems

IBM offers a broad systems and storage portfolio combined with decades of experience solving real business problems. With x86, POWER and mainframe systems, disk, tape and network storage systems, IBM can offer the right combination of systems to meet the challenges of your business.

Storage

Storage efficiency is more vital than ever. Your disk utilisation rate may be as low as 20% — while the amount of data you are required to store is exploding. IBM Storage can help.

Networking

The smarter data centre with improved economics of IT can be achieved by connecting servers and storage with a high-speed and intelligent network fabric that is smarter, faster, greener, open and easy to manage. IBM takes an open, standards-based approach to implement the latest advances in today’s flat, converged data centre network designs.

Software

IBM's comprehensive Systems Software solutions help to centralise, streamline and automate your physical and virtual infrastructure, allowing you to optimise workloads and increase your ability to deliver IT services that align with business goals. Let us show you how IBM Systems Software helps you realise the value of IBM smarter computing, by allowing a more effective use of the advanced features in IBM hardware and operating systems.

Integrated solutions

The reality is that you need an IT infrastructure designed for data, tuned to the task and managed in the cloud. If your IT staff spends all of their time managing IT, they won’t be working with you to drive innovation. You need your infrastructure to help you in the marketplace, to help you innovate, to help you be more competitive, to help you succeed.

Systems-related services

IBM Systems-related services offers a full range of services to help design, develop, integrate, optimise, validate and deploy comprehensive solutions that support On Demand Business.
