SAN JOSE, CA – Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) – Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) the leader in adaptive and intelligent computing, today launched Alveo, a portfolio of powerful accelerator cards designed to dramatically increase performance in industry-standard servers across cloud and on-premise data centers. With Alveo, customers can expect breakthrough performance improvement at low latency when running key data center applications like real-time machine learning inference as well as video processing, genomics, and data analytics, among others. The Alveo™ U200 and Alveo U250 are powered by the Xilinx® UltraScale+™ FPGA and are available now for production orders. And like all Xilinx technology, customers can reconfigure the hardware, enabling them to optimize for shifting workloads, new standards and updated algorithms without incurring replacement costs.

Alveo accelerator cards deliver significant performance advantages over a broad set of applications. For machine learning, the Alveo U250 increases real-time inference throughput by 20X versus high-end CPUs, and more than 4X for sub-two-millisecond low-latency applications versus fixed-function accelerators like high-end GPUs*. Moreover, Alveo accelerator cards reduce latency by 3X versus GPUs, providing a significant advantage when running real-time inference applications.** And some applications like database search can be radically accelerated to deliver more than 90X, versus CPUs.***


Alveo is supported by an ecosystem of partners and OEMs who have developed and qualified key applications in AI/ML, video transcoding, data analytics, financial risk modeling, security, and genomics. Fourteen ecosystem partners have developed applications for immediate deployment. They are Algo-Logic Systems Inc, Bigstream, BlackLynx Inc., CTAccel, Falcon Computing, Maxeler Technologies, Mipsology, NGCodec, Skreens, SumUp Analytics, Titan IC, Vitesse Data, VYUsync and Xelera Technologies. Additionally, top OEMs are collaborating with Xilinx to qualify multiple server SKUs with Alveo accelerator cards including Dell EMC, Fujitsu Limited and IBM with more to come.

“The launch of Alveo accelerator cards further advances Xilinx’s transformation into a platform company, enabling a growing ecosystem of application partners that can now innovate faster than ever before,” said Manish Muthal, vice president, data center, Xilinx. “We are seeing strong customer interest in Alveo accelerators and are delighted to partner with our application ecosystem to deliver production-deployable solutions based on Alveo to our customers.”

“FPGA-based acceleration solutions in modern data centers are gaining popularity as accelerators that can be programmed and reprogrammed easily as users see fit,” said Ravi Pendekanti, senior vice president, product management and marketing, Dell EMC Servers & Infrastructure Systems. “Our collaboration with Xilinx to create best-in-class acceleration solutions will benefit customers in a range of applications from video content streaming to risk management and financial services.”

“Fujitsu congratulates Xilinx on the announcement of its new board level products and solutions. With 5G use cases for applications such as autonomous driving, telemedicine, and virtual reality, the range of vRAN applications based on the COTS servers is expected to expand considerably in the future,” said Mr. Masaki Taniguchi, vice president, deputy head of Network Products, Fujitsu Limited. “Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. have been collaborating with Xilinx to jointly validate 3X performance on critical software functions in the 4G vRAN system. Fujitsu looks forward to creating powerful solutions by combining its x86 servers and Xilinx adaptable acceleration boards.”

“The launch of Xilinx’s standard acceleration board products is an exciting addition to a rapidly emerging technology arena focused on fueling performance-hungry applications,” said Keith McAuliffe, Vice President and Chief Technologist, Servers Global Business Unit, HPE. “We look forward to collaborating with Xilinx to bring their technology to market and enable our customers to create breakthrough business value.”

“With the IBM Power Systems AC922 server, IBM has already demonstrated that we have the best platform for enterprise AI training,” said Steve Sibley, vice president of IBM Cognitive Systems. “IBM sees inference as a key component of a complete, end-to-end AI platform, and POWER9’s leadership I/O bandwidth for data movement makes it an ideal pairing with Xilinx’s new Alveo U200 accelerator card to bring inference to the enterprise.”

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), a leading provider of platform solutions designed to help small and medium-sized businesses succeed online, announced that it is offering free SSL Certificates for customers of its Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage brands to ensure customer data and transactions are secure for themselves and their visitors. The offer will help customers enjoy continued success online with the update of Google Chrome 68, which is more security-focused.

Beginning earlier this week, Google’s updated web browser Chrome 68 alerts users if a site does not use a secure HTTPS connection, making an SSL Certificate – an important aspect of any website – even more critical. Google’s updated browser displays a “Not Secure” message in the URL of any website that does not have a secure HTTPS connection, making visitors less likely to engage and reducing visibility in Google search results.


“Many of our customers are entrepreneurs, focused on running their businesses, not web developers adept at reacting to the ever-changing world of technology. Endurance is dedicated to helping millions of these small business owners succeed online and our SSL Certificate offer is just another example of providing our customers with the right tools and support to help them grow their businesses,” said Suhaib Zaheer, senior vice president and general manager, hosting brands at Endurance. “In this day and age, a secure website is no longer optional and SSL certification is now a ‘must-have’ for any website, which is why we’re proud to offer this to Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage customers free of charge in light of Google’s browser update.”

Why Encryption is Critical

For the millions of small businesses online today, a “Not Secure” notice could have a dramatic impact on their business. Without a SSL Certificate encrypting the data passing between them and the visitors to their site, both parties could be at risk, and without dedicated resources for site security, small businesses may be even more vulnerable to attacks.

A simple SSL Certificate can help to protect small businesses by:

Authenticating their presence – Validates that customers are talking to their servers and not someone pretending to be them.
Retaining data integrity – Prevents bad actors from modifying the communications between visitors’ computer and business servers, or even injecting unwanted content into sites.
Encrypting data – Keeps the data passing between a site and its visitors private.
Boosting SEO rank – Improves search optimization since Google will give a boost in the ranking of websites that use an SSL Certificate.

Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage customers will receive free basic SSL to help ensure their sites are secure, allowing their customers to interact with them with confidence. Paid options are also available for customers looking for additional SSL features, such as warranty and TrustLogo Site Seal to display on their website to show their customers that data is secure.
