  2. 2. © 2013 IBM CorporationTechnical Computing2Technical Computing trends driving IBM strategy1. Unceasing demand for compute– Increased complexity and scalability requirements2. Rise of shared services / convergence of compute + big data– Need to support any/all distributed applications (heterogeneouscompute + big data) in a common infrastructure3. Clusters  Grids  HPC Clouds– From single purpose static clusters to workload-driven flexible anddynamic HPC cloud resources4. Integrated solutions vs. components– Focus on building comprehensive integrated systems– Easy-to-use, optimized for workloads, and ready-to-run

  5. 5. © 2013 IBM CorporationTechnical Computing55Business Challenge• Need for high capacity, high value solutions forHPC workloads• Faster complete disk rebuild time• Need for an integrated solution• Need for extreme data integrity• Support for high performance and scalabilityMore informationSystem x solutions optimized forTechnical Computing5 Note: Currently in Controlled General AvailabilityClient benefit• High capacity, high performance storage offering.• With no storage controllers, the data resides closer to thecompute nodes for faster rebuild times.• This solution is highly cost competitive on a per GB basis, canrun either Infiniband or Ethernet connections, and providesindustry-leading throughput using efficient De-Clustered RAIDTechniques. It is fulfilled as an integrated and tested solution.• Enhanced data protection• Up to 400% faster complete disk rebuild time, up to 20x fasterfor Critical Data rebuildSolution summaryGSS is an entirely Blue-on-Blue solution, built on standardSystem x components with GPFS software tuned to supportthis configuration. There are two models – Model 24 andModel 26. Each model has two x3650 M4 servers twin-tailedwith either four or six JBODs, with up to 348 disk drives. Thissolution leverages the high demand for GPFS software andcouples it with a System x hardware solution, and is providedexclusively through the Intelligent Cluster portfolio. GSS iseasy to configure and buy. It offers great performance andscalability for clients, with no storage controllers and is builton a “building block” approach.System x® GPFS™ Storage ServerHigh Capacity, High Performance, Cost Effective Storage Solution
