Moor Insights & Strategy publishes Amazon/Xilinx cloud-acceleration analysis on

2017年9月28日 | By News | Filed in: News.


Karl Freund, a Senior Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, has just published an article on titled “Amazon And Xilinx Deliver New FPGA Solutions” that discusses Amazon’s use of Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs in the Amazon AWS EC2 F1 instance and how those resources are now being used more widely to distribute cloud-based applications through AWS Marketplace’s Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). Freund gave three specific examples of companies using these resources to offer accelerated, cloud-based services:



  • NGCodec offers accelerated video encoding and AR/VR processing for cloud-based video services including surveillance and OTT (over-the-top) TV.


  • RYFT offers advanced query and search services.


  • Endico Genome offers the DRAGEN Bio-It Platform for genomic analytics.



Freund also notes that cloud-based applications from these three companies are not “GPU-friendly,” which means that these applications benefit far more from FPGA-based acceleration than they do GPU acceleration.



NGCodec, Ryft, and Edico Genome have all appeared in Xcell Daily posts. For more information, see:
