IBM has confirmed this week that it expanded Deep Computing Capacity on Demand (DCCoD) solutions.
In a collaboration with Intel, IBM plans to offer the latest Dual-Core and Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor technology on its System x servers for users who rent compute time at IBM’s hosted DCCoD centers.
The offering is targeted primarily at financial markets customers, who require additional, high-performance computing power to run intraday and post-trading analytics, for example. The IBM/Intel solution can be purchased in increments as small as eight hours a day, five days a week.
David Gelardi, vice president of Deep Computing, IBM companies are facing increasing limitations – primarily around space constraints and power consumption — when it comes to adding high-performance infrastructure. This new extension of our DCCoD offering provides companies with the flexibility to access horsepower as necessary, while allowing them to conserve the footprint of their data center and avoid new energy expenditures.
