With its latest offering, IBM is giving companies of all sizes easier and more affordable access to the latest virtual desktop applications with no compromise to performance - NVIDIA GPU accelerators on IBM Cloud deliver breakthrough performance for graphics-accelerated applications, big data
analytics, HPC, AI and cognitive workloads.
By adding Tesla M60 GPU accelerators to other NVIDIA GPU offerings on IBM Cloud, customers can deploy fewer, more powerful cloud servers while churning through complex jobs faster, and can speed through a range of compute-intensive workloads, including data analytics, graphics, energy exploration and deep learning/artificial intelligence.
The Tesla M60 with NVIDIA GRID™ virtualisation technology helps accelerate virtualised desktop applications, especially in the area of CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) including AutoCAD. Companies can spin up these GPU resources on IBM Cloud on an on-demand basis to help cut their processing time from days (or weeks) to down to hours, compared to using CPU-only based servers.
“With NVIDIA GPU technology on IBM Cloud, we are one step closer to offering supercomputing performance on a pay-as-you-go basis, which makes this new approach to tackling big data problems accessible to customers of all sizes,” said Jerry Gutierrez, HPC leader for SoftLayer, an IBM Company.
“We’re at an inflection point in our industry, where GPU technology is opening the door for the next wave of breakthroughs across multiple industries” he added.
