Customers need applications and data to adjust and shift in response to dynamic market demands so their organization can become more competitive. Developers and IT staff also need diverse and easy to use tools & data services to build and deploy applications anywhere, at any pace, with data that scales dynamically, achieves peak performance, and adheres to security requirements. The business goal is to drive agility throughout the organization and become more flexible for constantly changing market dynamics.

IBM Spectrum® Fusion HCI delivers innovation to help accelerate business growth and provides a faster path to hybrid cloud. Our solution delivers a single source to manage your container infrastructure and concurrent access to global data in the data center or in the cloud.

IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI  is a hyperconverged system designed to help customers to deploy Red Hat OpenShift faster with a pre-built and integrated data and hardware solution for the OpenShift Platform. Itcomes pre-built from factory; this helps avoid the need customers would have of putting all the individual pieces together independently.

IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI is ready to run your containerized workloads

  • Delivers faster path to application modernization with an integrated hardware and software platform designed to help customers deploy Red Hat OpenShift faster with storage, compute and networking resources
  • Increase business agility with access to global data resources on the edge, in the data center or in the cloud
  • Accelerate business growth with parallel data access, AI optimized resources, and scalable data that can span from edge to core to cloud
  • Simplify the management of an OpenShift fully solution with hyperconverged data and a single dashboard to manage local OpenShift resources and remote data resources

IBM Spectrum Fusion can also be used to optimize AI workflows with modern container applications.  Data can be processed on the IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI and then data can be transparently leveraged in the Cloud (S3 data) or on another IBM Spectrum Scale system leveraging the high performance ESS 3200 or ESS 3000 NVMe flash system.  If a customer is using NVIDIA for AI,  IBM Spectrum Scale can preprocess or process at the edge with NVIDIA A100 GPUs and NVIDIA Red Hat Operator and tools and then transparently leverage that data in the cloud or directly on another larger more compute intensive NVIDIA DGX A100 system with the IBM ESS 3200 high performance storage system.
