Standard computing platforms need help

Complex networking, security, storage and other compute workloads fail to meet application and service requirements.

Standard computing platforms are the basis for hyper-scale today but struggling to keep up

Central Processing Unit (CPU)
Processes all the data for cloud services.
Needs to divide time and resources between many different tasks.

Network Interface Card (NIC)
Delivers data to and from the CPU.

Reconfigurable computing platform using FPGAs to close the performance gap

Reconfigurable Computing Platform
A combination of CPUs and FPGAs process all the data for NFV and cloud services.
In a workload-specific architecture where FPGAs focus on optimized tasks while general purpose CPUs support application processing.
FPGA-based SmartNICs can offload specific tasks such as network and security processing from the CPU.

Reconfigurable Computing fulfills the vision
for software defined networking

We enhance open and standard servers, to boost innovation and release valuable
compute resources, that improve services and increase revenue.

Our Reconfigurable Computing Platform flexibly offloads, accelerates and secures standard servers
based on a broad set of FPGA software for leading IT applications supported on a wide array of hardware.
