“In order to resolve problems customers face today and in the future we need an industry that collaborates on an open standards principle,” said John Roese, EVP/CTO, Dell EMC. “Efforts like OpenCAPI and Gen-Z are essential to enabling our customers to innovate and thrive in an ever changing industry.”
“Google is committed to open standards and we are excited to contribute to the cross-industry use and development of OpenCAPI,” said Chris Johnson, Principal Engineer, Google. “OpenCAPI can advance the future of server design by enabling higher performance for data-intensive workloads and the emerging accelerator ecosystem.”
SAN JOSE, CA, October 14, 2016 … Technology leaders AMD, Dell EMC, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Mellanox Technologies, Micron, NVIDIA and Xilinx today announced a new, open specification that can increase datacenter server performance by up to 10x, enabling corporate and cloud data centers to speed up big data, machine learning, analytics, and other emerging workloads. Servers and related products based on the new standard are expected in the second half of 2017.
“AI is changing the way datacenters and the servers that power them are being built,” said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing, NVIDIA. “Defining the next-generation interconnect between storage, CPUs, GPUs, networking and accelerators will help achieve new levels of intelligence for the datacenter.”
“AMD is supporting OpenCAPI to bring high-performance accelerators from the Radeon Technologies Group into the datacenter, consistent with our work to establish open standards for accelerators that work across multiple processor architectures and suppliers,” said Greg Stoner, AMD senior director, Radeon Open Compute. “We believe open standards are absolutely the right approach to drive further […]
