IBM Extends GPU Cloud Capabilities, Targets Machine Learning

May 19, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth As we have noted over the last year in particular, GPUs are set for another tsunami of use cases for server workloads in high performance computing and most recently, machine learning. As GPU maker Nvidia’s CEO stressed at this year’s GPU Technology Conference, deep learning is a target market, fed in part by a new range of their GPUs for training and executing deep neural networks, including the Tesla M40, M4, the existing supercomputing-focused K80, and now, the P100 (Nvidia’s latest Pascal processor, which is at the heart of a new appliance specifically designed for deep learning workloads). While we have heard a great deal over the last year from companies like Baidu, Flickr, and others, on-premises GPU-laden systems are the key to training deep…
