Unleash Your Data Center

For Intel® Xeon® CPU with FPGAs

Peer inside a server rack in one of today’s most advanced data centers—whether public cloud or private enterprise—and you might be startled to find ICs from a whole new category: Intel® FPGAs. They are there—on server boards next to CPUs, in network adapters, or in dedicated acceleration planes—for just one reason. Intel FPGAs break open bottlenecks.

These pinch points may be software loops that demand enormous amounts of computations. Or they may be congested spots in the data center network, where exploding traffic levels and new processing tasks leave applications spinning, waiting for data. Either way, they are the sworn enemies of the data center’s most important metrics: response time to client applications and total cost of ownership for operators.

Intel FPGAs burst open these bottlenecks with a combination of microarchitectural flexibility, massive parallelism, huge data bandwidth, and rapid reconfigurability. As workloads and traffic pattern shift, Intel FPGAs can anticipate needs and bring optimized hardware acceleration to bear on the critical points. Read on to see how Intel FPGAs can burst the bottlenecks in the applications most vital to you.


Artificial Intelligence

Intel FPGAs accelerate the computations at the heart of the many forms of machine intelligence, from rule-based systems to deep-learning to memory-enabled networks. In both training and inference modes, Intel FPGAs’ reprogrammability and adaptability to sparse data and variable-precision weights are critical tools for today’s and tomorrow’s artificial intelligence.

Data Analytics

Big-data analysis performance comes down to two factors: data bandwidth and computational speed. See how the enormous bandwidth and massive computational parallelism of Intel FPGAs with hardware floating-point can team with Intel Xeon® CPUs to burst the bottlenecks that hold back performance on analytical tasks—without bursting your power or cooling budgets.

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)

Increasingly, network functions are moving from proprietary hardware onto data center servers. But as line rates increase and packet processing grows more complex—especially with the growing need for security—rapidly reconfigurable Intel FPGAs are taking over wire-speed data-plane tasks, freeing Intel CPUs for more complex control functions and new revenue-producing workloads.

Traditional financial workloads have huge data sets that need to be processed and pored through. As a result, the hardware must keep up with the computing demands and constantly changing industry parameters. How can we choose the right solution to optimize our workloads, account for performance and power needs, and be flexible enough to change with evolving requirements?
