Value is migrating throughout the IT industry from hardware to software and services. High Performance Computing (HPC) is no exception. IT solution providers must position themselves to maximize their delivery of business value to their clients – particularly industrial customers who often use several applications that must be integrated in a business workflow. This requires systems and hardware vendors to invest in making their infrastructure “application ready”. With its Application Ready solutions, IBM is outflanking competitors in Technical Computing and fast-tracking the delivery of client business value by providing an expertly designed, tightly integrated and performance optimized architecture for several key industrial applications. These Application Ready solutions come with a complete high-performance cluster including servers, network, storage, operating system, management software, parallel file systems and other run time libraries, all with commercial-level solution s

6 criteria for evaluating a high-performance cloud services providers Engineering, scientific, analytics, big data and research workloads place extraordinary demands on technical and high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. Supporting these workloads can be especially challenging for organizations that have unpredictable spikes in resource demand, or need access to additional compute or storage resources for a project or to support a growing business. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) enables organizations to deliver HPC services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs. SDI is the foundation for a fully integrated environment, optimizing compute, storage and networking infrastructure to quickly adapt to changing business requirements, and dynamically managing workloads and data, transforming a s

Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
