network accelerator serves infrastructure offload in the data center
Stephen LawElectronics Semiconductors AMD Cloud FPGA Hyperscalers service
Alveo U45N network accelerator is an FPGA-based platform that delivers low-latency, 2x100G line rate performance for infrastructure workloads in the data center—freeing up precious server CPU cycles from infrastructure tasks to run business-critical applications. Hyperscalers, cloud service providers, and telco operators can adapt to their own infrastructure requirements by customizing virtual switching (e.g., OVS), security workloads (e.g., IPsec) and storage protocols. When combined with the Vivado tool flow and a comprehensive OpenNIC reference-based design, the Alveo U45N card delivers the hardware platform, tools, and IP for FPGA developers to build and differentiate their own network acceleration solutions.
