Engineering the next Data Center breakthrough: Programmable silicon platforms that bring higher value into the cloud
The last decade has seen the emergence of a new global market for cloud computing, which delivers computing services over the Internet to billions of users around the globe. The trend towards computing in the cloud represents a fundamental shift in the way people use computers. The cloud offers enterprises the means to shift tasks from their local IT infrastructure into remote, optimized computing clusters (and into the hands of the cloud services provider). For consumers, the cloud delivers storage, video, messaging, social networking, gaming, web search and many other services seamlessly, across diverse computing devices, anywhere in the world. Today’s tech-savvy consumers of IT services want it all—mobility, instant access to information, boundary-less collaboration—and management wants it all for less.
The cloud computing market grows each day both in size and in the sheer diversity of the services it provides. Two key factors contribute to this growth:
Xilinx offers expertise and Smarter Solutions in five distinct application spaces within the Data Center:
Through hardware and software programmability, the power of All Programmable devices accelerates processing and throughput and enables the creation of entirely new classes of servers, storage devices, and network solutions with the flexibility to enable Software Defined Networks (SDN) as this technology continues to evolve.
Xilinx All Programmable and Smarter Solutions include All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs, and 3D IC platforms in addition to a broad portfolio of SmartCORE and LogiCORE IP that can be customized to optimally address unique market requirements. The Xilinx Vivado™ Design Suite and the company’s Communications Design Center provide a faster, more flexible means to get to market more quickly with greater end-product differentiation, lower design risk, and lower TCO than is possible with ASICs and ASSPs. Xilinx All Programmable solutions can be more cost effective than ASICs and ASSPs while greatly reducing time to market, accommodating last-minute changes caused by changing market needs or customer requirements.
Xilinx customers can work with a dedicated team of in-house Data Center experts, from design specification to implementation, and have access to industry-leading semiconductors, a robust library of application software IP, software, support, and design services.
