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

IBM CAPI SNAP FPGA Development Trial

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.

Security and privacy in the cloud

  • IBM enables companies to scale and adapt quickly to changing business needs without compromising security, privacy or risk levels when using IBM cloud offerings.
