IBM finalizes Platform Computing acquisition
IBM has completed the acquisition of Platform Computing, which offers cluster, grid and cloud management software.
Platform Computing solutions are designed to help clients create, integrate and manage shared computing environments that are used in computational and data-intensive applications such as simulations, computer modeling and analytics. IBM says that by combining Platform Computing’s software with its systems and software, it can better serve enterprise clients that are turning to technical computing to accelerate application performance, improve infrastructure flexibility and reduce time to results.
Platform Computing will be integrated into IBM Systems and Technology Group. IBM intends to support Platform Computing’s software on heterogeneous systems and continue to work with many of Platform Computing’s existing partners.
