FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NVXL Technology, Inc., a disaggregated compute acceleration startup, announced today a $20 Million Series A round with Alibaba Group as a lead investor.
In conjunction with the investment, the companies have entered into a collaboration agreement to work together and evaluate NVXL's technology to support deep learning and machine learning workloads on Alibaba's platforms.
"This investment and strategic collaboration with Alibaba Group will enable NVXL to bring our innovative compute disaggregation technology to the market faster and with the benefit of working with a world-class Cloud Computing leader," said Jeffrey Bunting, CEO of NVXL.
The NVXL platform is built from the ground up to accelerate and scale compute performance with industry-leading density and performance/power/cost. Harnessing the power of FPGA and ASIC acceleration, the platform connects seamlessly to machine learning frameworks and implements a data flow architecture in a dynamically provisioned instance created from a pool of acceleration devices. By abstracting all low-level details, the platform is extremely easy to use.
NVXL will be previewing the platform at the 2017 SuperComputing conference in Denver, Colorado on November 13th-16th, Booth #882.
