Fully programmable FPGA processor for NVMe acceleration
BittWare’s 250-U2 is a Computational Storage Processor conforming to the U.2 form factor. It features a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA directly coupled to local DDR4 memory. This energy-efficient, flexible compute node is intended to be deployed within conventional U.2 NVMe storage arrays (approximately 1:8 ratio) allowing FPGA-accelerated instances of:
Erasure Coding and Deduplication
Compression, Encryption & Hashing
String/Image Search and Database Sort/ Join/Filter
Machine Learning Inference
The 250-U2 can be wholly programmed by customers developing in-house capabilities or delivered as a ready-to-run pre-configured solution featuring Eideticom's NoLoad IP. The 250-U2 is front-serviceable in a 1U chassis and can be mixed in with storage units in the same server, allowing users to mix-and-match storage and acceleration.
