In the era of cloud computing, new approaches to the underlying technologies will be required to fully realize the benefits of AI and deep learning. The combination of IBM Bluemix with NVIDIA GPUs provides the infrastructure foundation for customers to scale their deep learning and AI workloads. IBM Bluemix and cloud hosting partner Rescale will discuss NVIDIAs new P100 GPUs, including benchmark results and how they can enable next-gen AI and deep learning applications.
Today database performance records are being shattered by new innovative ways of tackling big data problems. We're calling it "fast data" and we're leveraging the power of GPUs to query 40 billion dataset rows in just milliseconds. Thanks to a collaboration between MapD, Bitfusion, IBM Cloud and NVIDIA no data problem is too big or complex to process. Using Bitfusion's Boost software, MapD was able to leverage over 64 NVIDIA Tesla GPUs across 16 IBM Cloud servers to filter and aggregate multi-billion row datasets in just milliseconds. Seeing is believing. Come find out why GPUs are quickly becoming the engine for the next generation of enterprise computing applications.
NVIDIA is redefining general-purpose computing and proud to be working closely with IBM and SoftLayer to bring the capabilities of GPUs to the SoftLayer Cloud offerings.
