Data Center Servers, Accelerators, and Offload Engines

Heterogeneous Servers, Accelerators, and Offload Engines Deliver more Performance while consuming Less Power

Processing big data, mining that data in big databases and making decisions in microseconds is mostly out of the realm of general-purpose CPUs— accelerators and purpose-built compute-offload engines are required to achieve those performance objectives. The high performance parallel processing capabilities inherent to Xilinx devices make FPGAs an attractive implementation technology on server motherboards as well as on network interface cards (NIC) when additional processing functions are needed between the network and the CPU.

Such a network adapter is extremely attractive for data center servers because latency is rapidly becoming the key performance bottleneck in highly parallelized applications.
