This IBM® Redbooks® publication documents and addresses topics to provide step-by-step customizable application and programming solutions to tune application and workloads to use IBM Power Systems™ hardware architecture. This publication explores, tests, and documents the solution to use the architectural technologies and the software solutions that are available from IBM to help solve challenging technical and business problems.
This publication also demonstrates and documents that the combination of IBM high-performance computing (HPC) solutions (hardware and software) delivers significant value to technical computing clients who are in need of cost-effective, highly scalable, and robust solutions.
First, the book provides a high-level overview of the HPC solution, including all of the components that makes the HPC cluster: IBM Power System S822LC (8335-GTB), software components, interconnect switches, and the IBM Spectrum™ Scale parallel file system. Then, the publication is divided in three parts: Part 1 focuses on the developers, Part 2 focuses on the administrators, and Part 3 focuses on the evaluators and planners of the solution.
The IBM Redbooks publication is targeted toward technical professionals (consultants, technical support staff, IT Architects, and IT Specialists) who are responsible for delivering cost-effective HPC solutions that help uncover insights from vast amounts of client’s data so they can optimize business results, product development, and scientific discoveries.
