IBM bets on an open development approach for new levels of computing power

The high processing requirements related to advancements including artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, real-time fraud protection and the development of life-saving drugs require new levels of computing power, and are steadily at the core new technical challenges.

To address this need, IBM has taken an open development approach to system design to more fully take advantage of acceleration technologies.

Based on OpenPOWER innovations from companies such as NVIDIA, IBM’s OpenPOWERLinux servers with POWERAccel set a new standard for data-intensive workloads compared with x86 processor-based servers.

Featuring a newly designed processor, the IBM POWER8 with NVIDIA NVLink, the new system delivers aims to deliver industry-first innovation available on POWER’s open architecture.
