New IBM POWER8 Processors with NVIDIA NVLink and GPUs Accelerate Deep Learning and Analytics Capabilities on the Nimbix Cloud

We are expanding our performance leadership in cloud supercomputing with the addition of IBM’s Power Systems S822LC featuring NVIDIA® Pascal™ GPUs. Nimbix will now put the capabilities of IBM Power Systems for high performance computing, based on the POWER8 with NVIDIA NVLink™ interconnect technology processor, and Nimbix’s JARVICE platform in the hands of developers and data scientists to achieve unprecedented performance.

The new IBM Power Systems S822LC for HPC stems from community innovation within the OpenPOWER Foundation and is fine-tuned for deep learning, artificial intelligence, and cognitive computing. The new POWER8 with NVIDIA NVLink processor directly connects the POWER8 CPU with NVIDIA Tesla® P100 Pascal GPUs through NVIDIA NVLink, a high-speed, energy-efficient bidirectional interconnect. NVIDIA NVLink is embedded at the silicon level and incorporated into the overall system design. With this tight coupling of IBM and NVIDIA technology data can flow 5x faster than on a comparable  competitive offering.


Nimbix provides on-demand and scalable compute resources that enable organizations to run large-scale High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads in the cloud. HPC allows scientists, developers, and engineers to solve complex science, engineering, development, big data, and business problems using applications that require high compute capabilities. Nimbix’s growing number of integrated platform services allows organizations to increase the speed and effectiveness of research by running high performance computing in the Nimbix Cloud.
