Was it just two weeks ago that Amazon announced the FPGA-accelerated F1 instance of its AWS (Amazon Web Services) in developer preview form at Amazon’s AWS re:Invent 2016 event in Las Vegas, Nevada? (See “Amazon picks Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGAs to accelerate AWS, launches F1 instance with 8x VU9P FPGAs per instance.”)

 

The next day at the same event, NGCodec demonstrated its hardware-accelerated RealityCodec 4K video codec running on the Amazon AWS’ FPGA-accelerated EC2 F1 instance. (See “NGCodec announces high-speed 4K video compression for Amazon AWS’ new FPGA-accelerated EC2 F1 instance.”)

 

Add two more applications up and running on the FPGA-accelerated AWS EC2 F1 instance:

 

 

 

 

 

If you’ve been reading the Xilinx Xcell Daily blogs for a while, then both Ryft and Edico Genome might be familiar to you. Both companies previously implemented high-performance cloud appliances based on Xilinx FPGAs. (See “FPGA-based Ryft ONE search accelerator delivers 100x performance advantage over Apache Spark in the data center” and “FPGA-based Edico Genome Dragen Accelerator Card for IBM OpenPOWER Server Speeds Exome/Genome Analysis by 60x.”)

 

Now that Amazon is standardizing FPGA-accelerated for cloud computing using multiple Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs, both Ryft and Edico are porting their applications to the Amazon AWS cloud.

 

Can you say “rapid deployment”? I knew you could.
