The Dollars And Sense Of Nvidia Paying A Fortune For Arm

Back in April, when we were talking with Nvidia co-founder and chief executive officer Jensen Huang about the datacenter being the new unit of compute, we explained that we were always disappointed with the fact that Nvidia did not bring its “Denver” hybrid Arm CPU and Nvidia GPU, previewed way back in January 2011, to market, and said further we really wanted Nvidia to redefine what a CPU is by breaking its memory and I/O truly free from its compute.

Building An Ecosystem for Heterogeneous Memory Supercomputing

The drive toward exascale computing is giving researchers the largest HPC systems ever built, yet key bottlenecks persist: More memory to accommodate larger datasets, persistent memory for storing data on the memory bus instead of drives, and the lowest power consumption possible.

One Network Operating System To Rule Them All

Networks may not be the most expensive thing in the datacenter – they typically comprise about 10 percent to 15 percent of the cost of a distributed system, including cables, transceivers, switches, and routers – but they are without a doubt the most complex part of distributed systems.
