by sleibso 09-13-2017 11:52 AM Ryft has announced that it now offers its Ryft Cloud cloud-based search and analysis tools on Amazon’s FPGA-accelerated AWS EC2 F1 instance through Amazon’s AWS Marketplace. When Xcell Daily last covered Ryft, the company had introduced the Ryft ONE, an FPGA-accelerated data analytics platform. (See “FPGA-based Ryft ONE search accelerator delivers 100x performance advantage over Apache Spark in the data center.”) Now you can access Ryft’s accelerated search and analysis algorithms instantly through Amazon’s EC2 F1 compute instance, which gets its acceleration from multiple Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGAs. According to Ryft, FPGA acceleration using the AWS EC2 F1 instance boosts application performance by 91X compared to traditional CPU-based cloud analytics. How fast is that? Ryft has published a benchmark chart that shows you just how fast that is: The announcement includes a link to a Ryft White Paper titled “Powering Elastic Search in the Cloud: Transform High-Performance Analytics in the AWS Cloud for Fast, Data-Driven Decisions.” For more information about Amazon’s AWS EC2 F1 instance, see: AWS makes Amazon EC2 F1 instance hardware acceleration based on Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs generally available AWS does a deep-dive video on the Amazon EC2 F1 Instance, a cloud accelerator based on Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs Amazon picks Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGAs to accelerate AWS, launches F1 instance with 8x VU9P FPGAs per instance Read More Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
