IBM And Xilinx Boost Power Chips To Further Expand Into Big Data And Machine Learning

IBM and Xilinx announced a partnership, and the two companies are working on integrating Xilinx FPGAs with Power systems. The pair intends to accelerate workloads such as big data analytics and machine learning, to name a few.(Photo : Xilinx) IBM and chip maker Xilinx team up to bring IBM’s Power processors to more servers, looking to garner a bigger portion of the data center market than Intel. Last year, the Big Blue initiated its Open Power program in an effort to boost Power by licensing the design for use by other companies. Now, with this partnership, IBM will be able to take things up a notch. The pair will work with everything, including infrastructure, middleware and software. They’ll be focusing on integrating Xilinx field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) with Power-based systems…
