At the Open Compute Summit, Microsoft and NVIDIA unveiled a new hyperscale GPU accelerator for artificial intelligence workloads in the cloud. The HGX-1 harnesses eight NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs and high-speed interconnects.
At last week’s Open Compute Summit, Microsoft confirmed that it is test-driving ARM cloud servers from Qualcomm and Cavium in its data centers.

The Open Compute Project U.S. Summit will be held on March 8-9, 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in San Jose, California.
Schneider Electric and Emerson Network Power are actively engaging with the Open Compute Project, introducing racks, power equipment and even new business units designed to build upon the community’s progress.
The hyperscale data center of the future will run on 48 volt DC power, according to Google, which unveiled the custom design powering its servers and joined the Open Compute Project to evangelize this vision to the world.
