A computer Cluster is a group of loosely coupled computers that work together closely so that in many respects they can be viewed as though they are a single computer. The components of a cluster are commonly, but not always, connected to each other through fast local area networks.
IBM Platform Computing Cloud Service lets users economically add computing capacity by accessing ready-to-use clusters in the cloud-delivering high performance that compares favorably to cloud offerings from other providers. Tests show that the IBM service delivers the best (or ties for the best) absolute performance in all test categories. Learn More.
This book examines data storage and management challenges and explains software-defined storage, an innovative solution for high-performance, cost-effective storage using the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS).
Recent IDC surveys of the worldwide high performance computing (HPC) market consistently show that cooling today's larger, denser HPC systems has become a top challenge for datacenter managers. The surveys reveal a notable trend toward liquid cooling systems, and warm water cooling has emerged as an effective alternative to chilled liquid cooling.
This report defines storage-centric virtualized infrastructure, its opportunity and use cases, and the emerging vendor landscape that IT infrastructure and operations groups should evaluate as they purse the software-defined data center.
This document makes recommendations for the design, optimization and scaling of VMware Horizon Workspace and Horizon View deployments on Nutanix. It shows the scalability of the Nutanix Complete Cluster and provides detailed performance and configuration information on the scale-out capabilities of the cluster when leveraged for Horizon deployments.
Extensive testing has been performed in collaboration with VMware to simulate real real-world workload and conditions of operating a Horizon Workspace environment. Sizing and recommendations have been made after multiple testing iterations and joint validation.
The solution and testing provided in this document was completed with VMware Horizon Workspace deployed on VMware vSphere on the Nutanix Complete Cluster.
