Exclusive IBM Business Dinner at ISC 2013


High Performance Computing is about more than just computing power. That is why IBM combines enterprise-class and leading-edge technologies for computing, storage, and systems networking, accompanied by a powerful, intuitive software portfolio to manage clusters, workloads and data.

Let’s “Rethink High Performance Computing” together:

Join IBM at Europe’s leading High Performance Computing exhibition – the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) – at the Congress Center Leipzig. We’re looking forward to welcoming you at our IBM stand (booth 300) from June 17 to 19, 2013, to highlight the latest innovations in IBM High Performance Computing and Technical Computing Solutions where, among other things, you’ll have the opportunity to gain first-hand insights into our:

  • IBM GPFS Storage Server solution: Employing GPFS Declustered RAID technology instead of the traditional controller approach, this innovation ensures high performance data integrity for Big Data, Cloud and HPC applications.
  • IBM Platform Computing solution: The world’s leading workload and cluster management suite, designed for scalability and availability and equipped with an intuitive user interface to make it the perfect control hub for any HPC infrastructure.

Please see below for our detailed ICS event agenda.

You are also invited to join us for an evening of conversation and creative cuisine on June 18, 2013, at the Panorama Tower restaurant, located on the 29th floor of Leipzig’s City-Hochhaus. Enjoy the spectacular views from the tallest skyscraper in Central Germany and seize this opportunity to network with our experts and your industry peers.
Seats for this exclusive event are limited so please make your reservation by clicking on the link below before May 31, 2013.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you in Leipzig.

Registration is now closed.
