IBM and  AMD have entered into a multi-year joint development agreement in order to enhance and extend their security and artificial intelligence (AI) offerings.

According to the companies, the agreement will expand this vision by building upon open-source software, open standards, and open system architectures to drive confidential computing in hybrid cloud environments. This will also support a broad range of accelerators across high-performance computing (HPC), and enterprise-critical capabilities such as virtualisation and encryption.

To this end, the engagement between AMD and IBM researchers on joint development activities under the agreement is now underway.
