An environment for programmers to create CAPI accelerators
Enabling application programmers to embrace FPGA acceleration and all of CAPI’s technology benefits
Placing the accelerated compute engines, or FPGA “actions”, closer to the data to provide higher performance
Use FPGAs with CAPI 1.0 on the Power8 platform available in the Nimbix cloud
Acceleration Environment for Programmers
The CAPI infrastructure provides the technology and ecosystem foundation to enable datacenter applications to integrate with FPGA acceleration.
Compute Actions Closer to the Data
The simplicity of API parameters is elegant and powerful. Source and destination addresses can be coherent system memory locations or they can also be attached storage, network or memory addresses.
Higher Performance and Bandwidth Access
Accelerator “action” can run faster than equivalent software and has direct access to external data: Flash, Ethernet, SAN.
