BittWare 250-U2 Proxy Inline Acceleration (PIC): Fully-programmable, near-storage, in-line accelerator based on the Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA

The BittWare 250-U2 is a proxy in-line accelerator (PIA) in the U2 form factor.

FPGAs enable accelerated computing, network, and database access. This energy-efficient, flexible compute node implements conventional U.2 NVMe storage arrays (approximately 1:8 ratio) on the Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA.

Achieving compute acceleration by inline proxy (PIA) allows FPGA acceleration of compression, encryption, hashing, erasure coding, and deduplication, for example.

In intensive database applications, PIA accelerates string and image searches, and sort, join, and filter operations.
