Distributed FPGA Solution for High-Performance Computing in the Cloud
FPGAs are firmly represented in data centers: they perform various computational and acceleration tasks that will only increase in the complexity along with the advancement of technology. Similarly, the number of FPGAs in data centers is growing on a daily basis and will continue to do so, especially considering recent developments introduced by big players, such as Intel, Microsoft, etc.
A quest for a viable FPGA utilization infrastructure in the cloud has been underway for some time now. This white paper outlines an architecture based on a new technology introduced by LDA Technologies earlier this year. Architecture that will take FPGAs to a whole new level of abstraction and will allow access to unlimited FPGA resources in the cloud without existing hardware modification.
