Groq, the inventor of the Tensor Streaming Processor architecture announced that Groq hardware is now available on the Nimbix Cloud for select partners.

The Groq Nimbix partnership eliminates the complications of setting up and maintaining on-site machine learning (ML) infrastructure, allowing customers instead to purchase ML acceleration as an on-demand service. Companies can take advantage of opportunities that derive from artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive computing without needing to invest in hardware optimized for machine learning.

The Tensor Streaming Processor™ architecture is designed specifically for the performance requirements of computer vision, machine learning and other AI-related workloads, and was the first architecture in the world capable of 1 PetaOp/s performance on a single chip. Nimbix is the leading high-performance computing (HPC) cloud platform provider and offers purpose-built cloud computing for the world’s most demanding workloads.

Groq Hardware in the Cloud

Programmers use the Groq software stack along with Nimbix’s JARVICE™ development environment to create applications that run on Groq hardware in the Nimbix high performance cloud. Applications can be updated and deployed with just a few clicks. Interactive environments for experimentation and testing are available and ML experts can deploy high-performance inference services backed by Groq hardware.

Simplifying Compute

Groq’s goal is to simplify compute and make it easy for developers to get the performance they need as quickly as possible. Nimbix is dedicated to offering innovative, leading-edge solutions on the Nimbix Cloud. Groq’s simplified processing architecture is unique, providing unprecedented, deterministic performance for compute intensive workloads.

On the Nimbix Cloud, Groq provides swift access to a complete environment without the installation of hardware and software. All of the tools and drivers are set up and ready to go at launch. Researchers can access the hardware for an hour or for a day, depending on their needs—the ultimate in flexibility.

Put Groq Hardware to the Test

With a Nimbix account you can put the Groq hardware to the test. Familiarize yourself with our system tools, open source driver and software stack. Run performance benchmarks and even launch an image classification task on thousands of images and experience for yourself the world class, deterministic performance of Groq hardware.

Use JARVICE on Nimbix to develop container-based applications backed by Groq hardware that can be updated and deployed with a few clicks—the pinnacle of simplicity.

Apply for Access

Inspired by a software-first mindset, Groq’s TSP™ architecture provides a new paradigm for achieving both compute flexibility and massive parallelism without the synchronization overhead of traditional GPU and CPU architectures. The Groq architecture is many multiples faster than anything else available for inference, in terms of both low latency and inferences per second. 

We plan on providing early access to high performance Groq hardware to a few select partners. If you have a world changing application and would like to try the Groq hardware, apply here.
