This IDC study provides an overview and definitions for the enterprise-focused accelerated server infrastructure (hardware) market.
"Accelerated computing platforms have become a dominant segment of the worldwide server market. Server vendors, accelerator manufacturers, and cloud providers have all been adding acceleration technologies such as GPUs and FPGAs to their infrastructure solutions portfolio," said Peter Rutten, research director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies Group at IDC. "These accelerators are designed to overcome fundamental limitations of general-purpose processors for highly parallelized machine learning/artificial intelligence, analytical, and other data and/or compute-intensive applications."
