The Nallatech BenONE series of PCI Express FPGA accelerator cards has been qualified for the HP ProLiant DL160 G5 server. The Nallatech product is the first PCIe based FPGA accelerator qualified in the HP HPC accelerator program for use in HP ProLiant servers. By using Nallatech FPGA-based accelerators in HP ProLiant servers, customers can dramatically improve application response time with performance on selected applications increasing more than a factor of ten. This combination also significantly reduces energy, space and overall costs.
The Nallatech BenONE-PCIe series of accelerators provides users with a Xilinx user FPGA directly coupled to multiple banks of local SRAM and SDRAM memory. This processing node is attached via an 8-lane PCI Express host interface capable of up to 2GB/s aggregate host bandwidth. This platform provides customers with a powerful and flexible co-processor ideal for FPGA application development and deployment. It is supplied with support for the Intel QuickAssist Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL) software, drivers, IP cores and reference designs.
The integration of the BenONE-PCIe in HP ProLiant servers results in a commercially available PCI Express platform capable of accelerating a wide range of compute intensive applications while reducing overall power consumption. Nallatech FPGAs can leverage high-performance HP ProLiant servers to accelerate data intensive applications such those used in scientific research and security.
