IBM Propels HPC Clusters

ARMONK, N.Y. -- IBM (NYSE:IBM - News) announced today new initiatives designed to make it easier for clients to use "clusters" of servers for high-performance computing tasks. The company is investing in development, marketing and sales-channel programs that leverage IBM's technology prowess in high-end supercomputing and deep experience delivering industry-focused solutions.

"High performance computing (HPC) is rapidly spreading from science and academic research to smaller businesses and departments of larger enterprises that need better ways to process compute-intensive workloads," said Wendy McGee, director, IBM Cluster Solutions. "IBM plans to reduce the risk, time and costs associated with cluster installation and deployment. At the same time, we see new opportunities to leverage IBM's investments and technology expertise in supercomputing in the middle and lower tiers of the HPC industry."
