The IBM BladeCenter QS20 extends the IBM Power Architecture-based blade portfolio by providing a new level of parallelism and performance to targeted workloads, including image processing, signal processing, and graphics rendering applications. The QS20 complements IBM's more mature rack-optimized and blade server product lines (based on Xeon, Opteron, and Power processors) that are highly suited to production applications. Based on the Power Architecture, the Cell Broadband Engine processor was originally developed in collaboration with IBM, Sony and Toshiba. The Cell BE processor is an advanced microprocessor optimized for compute-intensive workloads. Cell BE's breakthrough multicore architecture and ultra-high-speed communications capabilities deliver vastly improved, real-time response for entertainment and rich media applications. Effectively delivering supercomputer-like performance by incorporating advanced multiprocessing technologies used in IBM's sophisticated servers, Cell BE is especially suitable for high-performance workloads across a number of industries, including digital media, medical imaging, aerospace and defense, seismic computing, communications, and the high-performance computing industry. The QS20 Cell BE technology-based system is designed for businesses that need the dense computing power and unique capabilities of the Cell BE processor to tackle tasks involving graphic-intensive, numeric applications. The system will rely on the Cell BE processor to help accelerate key algorithms like 3D rendering, compression, and encryption, to help enable companies to create and run highly visual, immersive, real-time applications.
