Fully programmable inline storage FPGA accelerator with M.2 NVMe SSD
BittWare’s 250-U2 is a near-storage accelarator 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
The 250-U2 is available as a fully-programmable device for customers preferring to develop and deploy their own application codes.
