Accelize Launches App Store for FPGAs

While FPGAs have been renowned for how hard they are to program, help may be on the way. Today Acceliz launched an App Store marketplace called AccelStore for FPGA applications. Currently, the marketplace hosts accelerator functions for data compression, search-and-replace, image encoding and security running on both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and OVH platforms and delivering performance improvements from 10x to more than 1000x compared to traditional pure software implementations. “Our customers are constantly looking for ways to boost their efficiency and improve service quality. FPGAs therefore represent a powerful tool for them,” said Nicolas Savides, VP of Strategic Partnerships at OVH. “AccelStore is an essential part of our plan for making FPGA acceleration a reality for our customers.”
