    This IBM® Redbooks® publication documents and addresses topics to set up a complete infrastructure environment and tune the applications to use an IBM POWER9™ hardware architecture with the technical computing software stack.

    This publication is driven by a CORAL project solution. It explores, tests, and documents how to implement an IBM High-Performance Computing (HPC) solution on a POWER9 processor-based system by using IBM technical innovations to help solve challenging scientific, technical, and business problems.

    This book documents the HPC clustering solution with InfiniBand on IBM Power Systems™ AC922 8335-GTH and 8335-GTX servers with NVIDIA Tesla V100 SXM2 graphics processing units (GPUs) with NVLink, software components, and the IBM Spectrum™ Scale parallel file system.

    This solution includes recommendations about the components that are used to provide a cohesive clustering environment that includes job scheduling, parallel application tools, scalable file systems, administration tools, and a high-speed interconnect.

    This book is divided into three parts: Part 1 focuses on the planners of the solution, Part 2 focuses on the administrators, and Part 3 focuses on the developers.

    This book targets technical professionals (consultants, technical support staff, IT architects, and IT specialists) who are responsible for delivering cost-effective HPC solutions that help uncover insights among clients’ data so that they can act to optimize business results, product development, and scientific discoveries.
