Platform Symphony is a High-performance computing (HPC) software system developed by Platform Computing, the company that developed Load Sharing Facility (LSF). Focusing on the Financial Services Industry,[2] Symphony is designed to deliver scalability and enhances performance for compute-intensive risk and analytical applications.[3] By enabling distributed computing, users will be able to run applications without worrying where the applications reside or whether there's enough capacity available to support demand.[4]

With Platform Symphony 4.0, Platform also gives developers free access to the Symphony Developer Edition with no restrictions or time limits.[5]
