IBM Platform Symphony software helps you control the massive compute power available in your current and future technical computing systems to address your most challenging and complex problems. This software can help you achieve breakthrough results in business and research activities. It can address challenges in parallel application development and deployment, and technical computing infrastructure management. Platform Symphony software can deliver faster, better quality results - even while using a smaller amount of required infrastructure.
Add more performance and scalability to your grid
Platform Symphony is an enterprise-class grid manager for running distributed application services on a scalable, shared, heterogeneous grid. The software is able to react almost instantly to changes in application demand.
Flexible, reliable MapReduce integration
The Advanced Edition of Platform Symphony includes an Apache Hadoop-compatible MapReduce implementation optimized for low latency, reliability and resource sharing. Unlike the open source solution which has no capability to re-start failed services automatically, this function is built into Platform Symphony's MapReduce implementation, delivering improved reliability. Platform Symphony Advanced Edition can also run multiple MapReduce and non-MapReduce jobs concurrently for better throughput and resource utilization.
Runs in a multitude of environments
Platform Symphony clients and services can be implemented on different operating environments, languages and frameworks. Clusters can also be comprised of nodes running multiple operating systems. For example 32- and 64-bit Linux hosts can be mixed running different Linux distributions, and multiple Microsoft Windows operating systems can be deployed as well. Platform Symphony can manage all these different types of hosts in the same cluster and control what application services run on each host.
Gain a competitive edgeProduct Highlights
Platform Symphony can provide a competitive advantage by quickly solving a wide range of parallelizable compute and data-intensive business problems. Complex simulations can be run with sub-millisecond latency and applications can process compute tasks with throughput of up to 17,000 tasks per second. For organizations that need a fast service oriented computing infrastructure, Platform Symphony delivers.
