Bright Computing, the leading provider of hardware-agnostic cluster and cloud management software, announces it has supplied its Bright Cluster Manager solution to the Fox Chase Cancer Center for use in a new high-performance computing (HPC) cluster. The 30-node cluster supports bioinformatics initiatives for Fox Chase’s world class cancer research programs. Fox Chase focuses on RNA sequencing and variant calling in tumor samples, as well as clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) data processing, protein structure prediction and molecular modeling, and computational docking investigations for drug discovery. Fox Chase Cancer Center chose Bright Cluster Manager for its easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI), which gives researchers point and click cluster management, rather than the traditional command line interface with which many researchers struggle.

The right IT infrastructure is hybrid

Article | March 4, 2020

From time to time, we invite industry thought leaders to share their opinions and insights on current technology trends on the IBM Systems IT Infrastructure blog. The opinions in these posts are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of IBM. Gartner forecasts worldwide public cloud revenue will grow 17 percent in 2020[1]. While it’s clear that cloud is still being rapidly adopted, on premises and private cloud are growing as well. My team and I see this on a daily basis as we visit with enterprise clients. To quantify this information and measure its impact, IBM recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how organizations develop and implement their IT infrastructure strategies. Forrester conducted an online survey of 350 global enterprise IT decision makers across industries to explore this topic.

Understand the role of infrastructure as code in DevOps

Article | February 28, 2020

Infrastructure as code plays a prominent role in enterprise DevOps shops. Use this chapter excerpt to understand why -- and to learn the basics of some common IaC tools. As technology evolves at a faster and faster pace, collaboration between teams, such as development and IT operations, becomes increasingly important to satisfy end user and business demands. DevOps aims to foster that collaboration, as well as improve application deployment times and quality. To succeed with DevOps, however, IT teams must be open to change. "DevOps is a culture different from traditional corporate cultures and requires a change in mindset, processes, and tools," writes Mikael Krief in the book Learning DevOps: The complete guide to accelerate collaboration with Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform and Azure DevOps.

5 Essential Principles for Managing SD-Branch Security

Article | March 5, 2020

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is revolutionizing the way that local branches are managed. As we’ve previously pointed out in our article on 4 things you should know about SD-Branch, it is being used to enable faster cloud adoption and greatly improve centralized control over the systems running in branch offices. Unfortunately, these advantages also come with some downsides. As SD-WAN has developed in SD-Branch, the number of IoT and end-user devices connected to these networks has grown exponentially. This means that the surface attack area of the average SD-Branch setup has increased enormously over the past few years. At the same time, business-critical applications are now sharing more data than ever over broadband internet connections, exposing critical data to interception or disruption.

Why IBM Power Systems means business for SAP

Article | February 20, 2020

As SAP customers consider the hybrid cloud model for their mission-critical applications, they need flexibility and choice in deployments. IBM Power Systems is known for its flexibility, powered by the largest SAP HANA virtualized server scalability[1]. Today, we are further extending this flexibility with the announcement of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud on IBM Power Systems. To enable this, SAP will place IBM POWER9 servers in SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (SAP HEC) data centers to give their clients the ability to run their workloads wherever they want across the private or hybrid cloud model. The availability of IBM Power Systems in a SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud environment is a great testimony of the value that IBM Power Systems brings to SAP clients on their digital transformation journey.
