Texas Instruments Inc. partners with Nimbix to boost the performance of Nimbix's Accelerated Compute Cloud (NACC).

By selecting TI's high-performance KeyStone multi-core DSPs, Nimbix aims to reduce power and accelerate workflows for video processing and imaging applications, making high performance computing in the cloud easier than ever before.

"When choosing technology for our accelerated compute cloud, we looked no further than TI's KeyStone multi-core DSPs," said Steve Hebert, CEO of Nimbix. "With the Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud, customers can leverage hardware acceleration technology, including TI's multi-core DSPs to increase the speed and ease of use for video and imaging applications, as well as reducing overall development costs. Together with TI, we are lowering the adoption barrier, while helping users achieve better cloud economics."

The TI and Nimbix collaboration demonstrates the power of combining low-power acceleration technology with an easy to use high performance cloud service. Nimbix leveraged the fixed-and floating-point capabilities of TI's KeyStone-based TMS320C66x DSPs to provide real time high definition video processing in a cloud compute environment. The use of multi-core DSPs over other processors lends itself to be better in performance per watt, resulting in lower TCO for a variety of cloud-based workloads, including video, imaging and multimedia.

Nimbix offers its cloud computing service through the Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud Portal at and through its innovative Task Processing API which enables enterprises to launch many concurrent cloud processing tasks with a simple web command.
