FPGA accelerators on Amazon powered by Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+
To process complex science, engineering, and business problems that require high bandwidth, enhanced networking, and very high compute capabilities, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) F1 instances are used. F1 instances make it easy to deploy hardware acceleration for critical workloads using FPGAs. Because FPGAs are programmable hardware redesign is not required.
Xilinx announced that its high-performance Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs are available in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) F1 instances. This instance provides programmable hardware acceleration with FPGAs and enables users to optimize their compute resources for the unique requirements of their workloads.
