Faced with exponential growth in computing requirements and the inability for CPU technology to keep pace, cloud and data center architectures are moving toward accelerated computing. Accelerators compliment CPU-based architectures and deliver both performance and power efficiency.
FPGAs can deliver 10x acceleration across a broad set of applications and are reconfigurable to provide an ideal fit for the changing workloads of the modern data center.
With acceleration capabilities a full generation ahead of any other FPGA, Xilinx UltraScale™ and UltraScale+ FPGAs are empowering hardware and application developers in many of the world’s largest and most innovative cloud computing services.
Work through this self-pasted tutorial where you will receive an overview of AWS F1 and SDAccel™ with step-by-step instructions on using Amazon EC2 F1 instances to accelerate your applications. In this virtual developer lab, you will connect to an F1 instance, experience F1 acceleration, and develop and optimize F1 applications with SDAccel.Get Started
