Intel® Reinvents FPGAs for a World of Flexible Acceleration Opportunities with WWT

FPGAs get simpler, smarter, stronger – see them in the ATC
Customizable field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have long provided data centers with a range of advantages including maximizing compute capacity and reducing TCO, but they’ve also had a reputation for complexity. Now, Intel® has introduced a new generation of FPGA technology that’s simpler and more affordable to deploy across a world of innovative applications.

Use case 3 – Napatech: More responsive cybersecurity and network monitoring
General-purpose data center architectures are adequate for some deployments, but not all: cybersecurity and network monitoring, for example, can create workloads that require lots of compute power in a hurry. For those instances, a standard-issue network interface card might not be good enough, resulting in a critical packet loss, degraded performance and potentially costly consequences.
To address that challenge, WWT has deployed a use case with Naptech Link Capture Software running on an Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card (Intel® FPGA PAC) which we believe can make a difference, accelerating today’s leading cybersecurity and networking applications. Naptech relieves the server’s Intel® Xeon® processor cores of their heaviest compute tasks, returning valuable processing resources to business apps and services. The result: significant performance advantages beyond the capabilities of standard NIC deployment.
No special hardware is required — with Intel® FPGA PACs and Napatech Link Capture Software, IT staff can achieve more effective cybersecurity and networking application capabilities on standard servers at a fraction of the cost of custom infrastructure alternatives. And, the Napatech solution is validated by benchmarks for a full spectrum of third-party, commercial, and open-source, Linux-based networking and cybersecurity applications.

Founded in 1990, WWT has grown from a small product reseller into a technology solution provider with $11.2 billion in annual revenue and more than 5,000 employees.
