Nvidia and IBM collaborate on using Nvidia GPUs to accelerate enterprise servers for Big Data applications

Nvidia and IBM announced that they will collaborate on accelerating IBM’s enterprise software applications with Nvidia’s graphics processing unit (GPUs) for IBM’s Power System servers. The partners also plan to integrate Tesla’s GPUs with IBM’s Power8 processors.

Nvidia and IBM emphasized that their collaboration is aimed not just at high-performance computing (HPC) users but also at moving what has until now been almost exclusively a supercomputer coprocessor — Nvidia’s Tesla — into enterprise-grade servers to help deal with the increasing volume of streaming Big Data in business contexts.
