The 250S+ is a fully-programmable NIC-sized near-storage accelerator featuring a Xilinx UltraScale+ Kintex FPGA. This PCIe Gen 3-capable accelerator card can be added to PCIe or CAPI-enabled server platforms introducing an energy-efficient acceleration capability for applications including:
Burst Buffer Caching
The 250S+ is available with a choice of two configurations: up to four M.2 NVMe SSDs coupled on-card to the Xilinx FPGA, OCuLink or MiniSAS-HD break-out cabling allowing the 250S+ to be part of a massively scaled storage array.
