The design center will advance the development of data-intensive research, industrial and commercial applications.
The company said the new center also provides commercial and open-source software developers with technical assistance to create high performance computing (HPC) applications.
Developers will take advantage of OpenPOWER systems leveraging IBM’s open and licensable POWER architecture with the NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform and Mellanox InfiniBand networking solutions.
The partnership between IBM, NVIDIA and Mellanox will create opportunities for software designers to acquire advanced HPC skills and drive the development of new technologies to bring value to customers globally.
Under this collaboration, scientists from IBM Client Center Montpellier and IBM Research Zurich will work along with team from NVIDIA and Mellanox to led the center.
“Our launch of this new Center reinforces IBM’s commitment to open-source collaboration and is a next step in expanding the software and solution ecosystem around OpenPOWER,” said Dave Turek, IBM’s Vice President of HPC Market Engagement.
Few days ago, IBM and Box integrated their existing products and services and develop new solutions targeted across industries such as healthcare, financial services, law and engineering.
