Gompute Harnesses Sophisticated IBM High Performance Computing
Gompute provides high-performance computing services for a remarkable range of customers. To attract new customers Gompute continually strives to find ways to boost performance, which helps customers to stay ahead of competitors with faster, more detailed simulations, while keeping costs low. To over come these challenges Gompute created a cluster based on 336 IBM System x iDataPlex dx360 M3 nodes, with IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger water cooling and Qlogic True Scale QDR Infiniband switches and Interconnect to deliver huge computational power to its clients. The results of creating 336 IBM System were expected to improve Gompute's power usage effectiveness in relation to cooling its datacenter by 25 percent. Tens of terabytes of data can quickly and easily be integrated into clients' simulations.
