Booth Highlights

Booth Demonstrations

Inference Acceleration with IBM PowerAI Vision
This demonstration shows computer vision made simple. Learn how you can train and deploy models on IBM Power Systems while integrating Xilinx ML Suite for inference.

Inference Acceleration in High Density Compute Server
This demonstration shows a dense AMD EPYC server supporting up to eight Alveo U200/U250 accelerator cards allowing for the highest adaptable compute density for compute intensive applications. The system also features a motherboard from Supermicro.  This system can be used to accelerate applications in the areas of genomics, video, big data, finance and more.

Big Data Analytics with Computational Storage
This demo shows BigStream Apache-Spark running 4X faster with Samsung Smart SSDs. The Samsung Smart SSD utilizes the Xilinx ZU19EG MPSoC device for computational storage acceleration resulting in faster time to insight, fewer CPU resources, and the ability to add FPGA-Compute + SSD capacity in granular increments independent of the CPU resources.

NVMe-attached Accelerated Compression
This demonstration showcases over 100Gbps of data compression using Eideticom NVMe-attached NoLoad™ acceleration. The NoLoad 250-U2 FPGA Accelerator uses an NVMe-compliant interface and supports Peer to Peer (P2P) transfers of PCIe data via Controller Memory Buffers (CMBs).The HPE DL385 server with AMD EPYC processor enables P2P PCIe data transfers to/from a NoLoad 250-U2 Xilinx-enabled FPGA card. NoLoad storage and analytics accelerator performs compute functions like compression and processes/moves the data to adjacent SSD’s with minimal host CPU intervention.

Hadoop Ingest with Computational Storage
Modern Hadoop cluster workloads are scaling into the Petabyte range, stressing infrastructure from both compute resource and storage I/O perspectives. ScaleFlux Computational Storage is the first turnkey, easy-to-deploy solution that accelerates GZIP compression and Erasure Coding processing (Hadoop 3), the main bottlenecks for big data ingest. In addition, ScaleFlux opens storage I/O by adding low-latency PCIe Flash as temporary storage space for analytical processing jobs assigned to HDDs. The end result? Optimized time-to-insight from massive data workloads. This demo utilizes standard Hadoop Teragen and Terasort benchmarks to show how ScaleFlux Computational Storage can cost-effectively deliver 3x faster data ingest times while running 60% more jobs on the same infrastructure footprint.

Key-Value Store Acceleration with CCIX
This demonstration shows the seamless KVS acceleration enabled by CCIX. See how you can accelerate KVS while maintaining the network inference solution and intelligence in application control operations processing. CCIX enables shared data structures between host and accelerator processing threads while maintaining high throughput with Storage Class Memory for large capacity solutions.
