Processing internet traffic, comprising an increasing volume of images and videos, gets harder each year for social networks, e-commerce sites, and Content Distribution Network (CDN) providers. These end-customers are looking beyond the tradition scale-up, scale-out approach of simply adding more CPU cores to server nodes. Companies are turning to hardware accelerators to account for increased media processing data center demands.
CTAccel Image Processor (CIP) integrated on the Intel® Arria® 10 Programmable Acceleration Card greatly improves the performance of image processing and image analytics with FPGA-based acceleration. CIP redefines data center image processing with an architecture that uses massive parallel algorithms to increase computational performance. As a result, it benefits customers because by increasing image processing throughput, reducing computational latency, and reducing total cost of ownership.
