Code Modernization Enables New Economics in the Data Center

Through a collaboration with Intel to modernize code and take advantage of machine learning algorithms, Pikazo was able to drop the cost of their service to create high-resolution “artistic” images – suitable for framing or content creation – from $14 per image to $0.99. Code modernization is the key to the Pikazo runtime success story. The CPU-based version of the Pikazo software now provides a 12x speedup over an NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) K40 GPU when processing high-resolution images according to Noah Rosenberg, CEO of Pikazo. “The biggest challenge is memory,” Rosenberg noted, “as 16 GB of memory is required to process a 1600×1600 pixel image. That just won’t fit on a GPU”. Enabling new economics in the data center The 14x cost reduction is the result of optimizations to the Torch middleware…
