INTEL® FPGA PAC can Filter, Aggregate, Sort, and Convert files faster than software alone

This article is taken from DATA PROCESSING TESTS BY NTT DATA SUGGEST THAT AN INTEL® FPGA PAC CAN FILTER, AGGREGATE, SORT, AND CONVERT FILES 4X FASTER THAN SOFTWARE ALONE from Intel

Nearly 80% of total data processing time is spent on tasks such as filtering, aggregation, sorting, and format conversion. NTT Data conducted proof-of-concept tests aimed at improving data processing performance for these tasks. The tests employed an Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel® FPGA PAC) to process Linux audit logs, resulting in processing speeds more than four times faster than the same processing done in exclusively in software.

Two factors drove this exercise:

  1. The advent of Intel FPGA PACs and other associated technologies have now made it far easier for companies to incorporate FPGAs as processing elements in data center servers.
  2. HLS technology—which enables engineers to use programming languages with C-like syntaxes for application development targeting FPGAs—makes it easier for software engineers to develop applications that target FPGAs.

Intel FPGA Technology Day (IFTD 2020)

Event Overview

Intel® FPGA Technology Day (IFTD) is a one-day virtual event that showcases the latest Intel FPGA products and solutions through a series of webinars and demonstrations from Intel, partners, and customers. During this day-long event, you will learn how Intel® FPGAs, Intel® eASIC structured ASICs, Intel® SmartNICs, and Intel® Enpirion® power solutions can shorten your design cycle, help to overcome your many design challenges, and accelerate business innovation. In the IFTD 2020 virtual exhibition space, you will see Intel® FPGA technology in action in the edge, in data centers, and in the cloud. IFTD 2020 takes place on November 18, 2020.
