Baidu Deploys Xilinx FPGAs in New Public Cloud Acceleration Services

Target applications to include machine learning and data security

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Xilinx, Inc. (XLNX) today announced that Baidu has deployed Xilinx FPGA-based application acceleration services in their public cloud. The Baidu FPGA Cloud Server, a new service in Baidu Cloud, features highly efficient Xilinx® Kintex® FPGAs, tools, and the software needed to develop and deploy hardware-accelerated data center applications such as machine learning and data security.

“FPGAs have the capability to deliver significant performance for deep learning inference, security, and other high growth data center applications,” said Liu Yang, Head of Baidu Technical Infrastructure, Co-General Manager of Baidu Cloud. “Years of research and FPGA engineering expertise at Baidu has culminated in our delivery of proven acceleration infrastructure for industry and academia.”

The Baidu FPGA Cloud Server provides a complete FPGA-based hardware and software development environment, including numerous hardware and software design examples to help users achieve rapid development and migration while reducing development costs. Each FPGA instance is a dedicated acceleration platform, never shared between instances or users. The design examples cover deep learning acceleration, encryption and decryption, among others.
