IBM POWER SERVER WITH NVIDIA CARDS.

One of the most significant barriers to realising benefits from AI is a lack of IT infrastructure that can handle the load. With the rise of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, it is more important than ever that organisations evaluate their existing IT infrastructure to ensure it can handle the challenges and complexity, as the wrong infrastructure can limit AI success.

Industry innovators IBM and NVIDIA have responded by delivering the IBM Power System IC922, a purpose-built inference server that rises to the challenge of putting AI models to work and helping clients move from data to insight.

Engineered for AI inference, IBM Power System IC922 provides the compute-intensive and low-latency infrastructure needed to unlock business insights from trained AI models. POWER9-based, Power IC922 provides advanced interconnects (PCIe Gen4, OpenCAPI) to support faster data throughput and decreased latency. Accelerated, the Power IC922 supports up to six NVIDIA® T4 GPUs.
