Presentation

Abstract Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), and the low latency access to storage it provides, is changing the compute stack. NVM Express is the de-facto protocol for communicating with local NVM attached over the PCIe interface. In this talk we will demonstrate performance data for extermely low-latency NVMe...

Abstract This session will look at the implications and impacts of OpenPOWER systems with Tesla for new and existing applications.   Speaker Bio Dr. John Ashley works for NVIDIA, and is the Senior IBM Developer Relationship Manager, based in Santa Clara, California. He assists IBM and other software ecosystem...

Abstract This session will provide an overview of how FPGA acceleration can enhance POWER systems for machine learning workloads such as image recognition.  Both recent results from various field implementations and extrapolation of throughput per watt expected in the future will be discussed.  Additionally, a brief...

Abstract Data is growing exponentially and demanding new approaches to system design. As Big Data becomes characteristic of all computing workloads, from high-end scientific modeling and visualization to commercial applications across all industries, data-centric approaches from the realm of high-performance computing (HPC) are evolving, integrating Cognitive...

Abstract Developers around the world seek the best tools to drive performance of their application, and through an open ecosystem they get access to a vast library of innovation. With the new OpenPOWER Developer Resources Map, developers can quickly and easily discover regional and global sites that...

Abstract OpenPOWER talks a lot about the system being completely open. There is however always that one caveat where the BMC firmware is not open. Well that all changes with OpenBMC. The reference system for P9 will be based on this open source code so I...

Abstract This presentation will delve into the proposed direction and implementation of Secure and Trusted boot for OpenPOWER systems.  Topics include an architectural overview of P8 security features and then goes into the details of existing hardware mechanisms on P8/P8+, a walk through on the establishment...
