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.
