To achieve high performance, modern computer systems rely on two basic methodologies to scale resources. A scale-up design that allows multiple cores to share a large global pool of memory and a scale-out design design that distributes data sets across the memory on separate host systems in a computing cluster. To learn more about In-Memory computing download this guide from IHPC and SGI.
In this research report, we reveal recent research showing that customers are feeling the need for speed—i.e. they’re looking for more processing cores. Not surprisingly, we found that they’re investing more money in accelerators like GPUs and moreover are seeing solid positive results from using GPUs. In the balance of this report, we take a look at these finding and and the newest GPU tech from NVIDIA and how it performs vs. traditional servers and earlier GPU products.
