IBM and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have expanded their 20-year partnership to help businesses use supercomputers as they compete in the global marketplace.
The company said the Deep Computing Solutions initiative will combine computational science experience from both the company and the laboratory, which houses IBM’s Sequoia supercomputer.
Sequoia was recently deemed the world’s fastest supercomputer by technology website Top500.org.
Program operations will occur at LLNL’s High Performance Computing Innovation Center.
Livermore recently bought a five-petaflop system to carry out HPCIC, Deep Computing Solutions and other unclassified research initiatives of the National Nuclear Security Administration.
NNSA, Livermore and IBM have created six high performance computer systems, the company said.
Computer and domain science experts from IBM and Livermore are collaborating to deploy new technologies in applied energy, green energy, biology, materials science, fabrication, manufacturing, data management and informatics.
