The microcontroller can run a full Linux OS and can offload workloads, even deep learning ones, from the server’s domain.
Accelerators executing data-intensive workloads in parallel dramatically changed the supercomputing landscape. IBM says that now you might not need them quite as much.
The startups says its new DPU chips execute data intensive wokloads 10 times faster than CPUs and offers a threefold reduction in total cost of ownership.
With more big international players on board, the foundation's new head of technology sees signs of "state of the art moving forward."
"As long as we have access to x86 or Arm, we can run Linux, and Linux can run anything."
The specialized machine learning IaaS offering runs on Nvidia DGX A100 hardware.
Securing data while in use opens doors from the on-prem data center to the cloud for more applications.
