Intel announced it is working with to provide increased workload acceleration capacity for the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 server. This will address computing-intensive markets – like streaming analytics, media transcoding, financial technology and network security with the new high-performance FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card D5005. It is the second card in the Intel PAC Portfolio and is shipping now in the HPE ProLiant DL3809 Gen10 server.

“The HPE ProLiant Gen10 server family is the world’s most secure, manageable and agile server platform available on the market today. By integrating the Intel FPGA PAC D5005 accelerator into the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 server, we are now delivering optimized configurations for an increasing number of workloads, including AI inferencing, big data and streaming analytics, network security and image transcoding,” said Bill Mannel, vice president and general manager, HPC and AI, at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Applications like streaming analytics, AI and media transcoding require large amounts of computational capability to meet today’s increasing demands. Data center customers use hardware accelerators for specific workloads that can most benefit from field programmable gate array-based (FPGA) hardware acceleration. Diverting such tasks to tailored hardware accelerators offloads suitable workloads and frees a server’s CPU cycles for higher value workloads. Offloading appropriate workloads lowers the data center operator’s total cost of ownership.

The Intel FPGA PAC D5005 acceleration card is based on a Stratix 10 SX FPGA and provides high-performance inline and lookaside workload acceleration to servers based on Xeon Scalable processors. HPE is the first server OEM to announce pre-qualification of the D5005 accelerator card for use with its servers, specifically the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 server.

FPGA PAC D5005 accelerator card offers significantly more resources including three times the amount of programmable logic, as much as 32 GB of DDR4 memory (a 4x increase) and faster Ethernet ports (two 100GE ports versus one 40GE port). With a smaller physical and power footprint, the Intel PAC with Intel Arria 10 GX FPGA fits a broader range of servers, while the Intel PAC D5005 is focused on providing a higher level of acceleration.
