Xilinx uses Amazon’s AWS EC2 for software development and regression testing

2018年1月25日 | By News | Filed in: News.



Xcell Daily has covered the FPGA-accelerated AWS EC2 F1 instances from Amazon Web Services several times. The AWS EC2 F1 instances allows AWS customers to develop accelerated code in C, C++, OpenCL, Verilog, or VHDL and run it on Amazon servers augmented with hardware-accelerated cards based on multiple Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGAs. (See below.)


A new AWS case study titled “Xilinx Speeds Testing Time, Increases Developer Productivity Using AWS” turns the tables. It discusses Xilinx’s use of AWS services to speed development of Xilinx development software such as the Vivado and SDx development environments. Xilinx employs extensive regression testing when developing new releases of these complex tools and the resulting demand spikes called for more “elastic” server resources. (Amazon’s “EC2” designation stands for “Elastic Compute Cloud.”)


As the case study states:



“Xilinx addressed its infrastructure-scaling problem by migrating to a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). ‘We evaluated several cloud providers and chose AWS because it had the best tools and most mature solution,’” says [Ambs] Kesavan, [software engineering and DevOps director at Xilinx].
