Eideticom’s NoLoad (NVMe Offload) platform uses FPGa-based acceleration on PCIe FPGA cards and in cloud-based FPGA servers to provide storage and compute acceleration through standardized NVMe and NVMe over Fabrics protocols. The No Load product itself is a set of IP that implements the NoLoad accelerator. The company is offering Hardware Eval Kits that target FPGA-based PCIe cards from Nallatech–the 250S FlashGT+ Card based on a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ KU15P FPGA—and the Alpha Data ADM-PCIE-9V3, which is based on a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU3P FPGA.
The NoLoad platform allows networked systems to share FPGA acceleration resources across the network fabric. For example, Eideticom offers an FPGA-accelerated Reed-Solomon Erasure Coding engine that can supply codes to any storage facility on the network.
Here’s a 6-minute video that explains the Eideticom NoLoad offering with a demo from the Xilinx booth at the recent SC17 conference:
