With 3,000+ researchers in 12 labs on six continents focused on Accelerated Discovery and Exploratory Sciences, IBM Research pioneers the most promising and disruptive technologies in hybrid cloud, AI and quantum computing. The combination of increasingly powerful computers and AI offers the possibility to be able to detect, diagnose, understand and cure diseases like never before. At IBM Research, we’re working on creating software and AI systems that can convert reams of health data into useable information for researchers and clinicians the world over. Scientific discovery is driven by two forces: the development of new capabilities and the relentless tenacity of the world’s sharpest minds. We see it as our duty to accelerate scientific progress by developing cutting-edge technologies, demonstrating scalable processes, and deploying new models of collaborative innovation.

As the world's enterprises accelerate their digital transformations, they discover that next-generation applications must deal with data that are bigger and faster at the same time, outstripping the capabilities of today's infrastructure. MemVerge's mission is to deliver a new architecture, called Big Memory Computing, that converges memory and storage, thereby removing the storage I/O bottleneck once and for all. MemVerge's Memory Machine™ Software virtualizes heterogeneous memory hardware into a software-defined memory service that has both high capacity and high performance. MemVerge ZeroIO™ In-Memory Snapshot technology captures the state of running applications, and can be used for application roll-back, cloning and high availability. The results are new levels of productivity, performance, availability, and mobility for today's data-centric applications, both on-premises and in the cloud.
