IBM and chip maker Xilinx team up to bring IBM's Power processors to more servers, looking to garner a bigger portion of the data center market than Intel.

Last year, the Big Blue initiated its Open Power program in an effort to boost Power by licensing the design for use by other companies. Now, with this partnership, IBM will be able to take things up a notch.

The pair will work with everything, including infrastructure, middleware and software. They'll be focusing on integrating Xilinx field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) with Power-based systems to allow faster processing rates to accelerate a wide variety of workloads, such as machine learning, big data analytics, genomics, network-functions virtualization and high-performance computing.

"The combination of IBM and Xilinx provides our clients not only with a new level of accelerated computing made possible by the tight integration between IBM POWER processors and Xilinx FPGAs, but also gives them the ability to benefit directly from the constant stream of innovation being delivered by the rapidly expanding OpenPOWER ecosystem," Ken King, general manager of Open Power, says in a press release.
