Due to the growing data volume and emerging demand for real-time analytics, businesses are increasingly required to build up accelerated data processing capabilities. Accelerators like FPGAs and GPUs will become an integral part of tomorrow’s data centers, cloud services and IoT infrastructure, powering a broad range of constantly evolving business applications.

Accelerator Technology in the Data Center

Accelerator technology can provide orders-of-magnitude acceleration to business-critical applications using Big Data analytics, machine learning, database management and to IoT infrastructures. Accelerators boost the energy efficiency of data center servers and can substantially reduce TCO.

Our Mission and Value Contribution

Despite the tremendous benefits delivered by accelerators like FPGAs and GPUs, there still exists a large gap between applications and the processor technology today. Xelera Technologies develops software to bridge this gap.

Edge Computing

Edge Computing service providers place the cloud resources nearer to end devices at the far edge in order to reduce the access latency and promote data locality. Here, acceleration hardware and software are mission-critical: They enable service providers to manage the increasing demand for latency-critical applications, such as live over-the-top video, gaming and real-time analytics/inference.

Data Center Software

True real-time processing of large data volumes, for example in real-time decision processes and live predictive analyses in areas such as banking & insurance, consumer, health & pharmaceutical, IT services, logistics, manufacturing, retail & wholesale and telecom.

Data Center Suppliers

Bringing the performance of accelerators into commercial applications by ensuring efficient and safe plug-and-play use in the data center.

Cloud Services

Enabling application providers to leverage the performance of accelerators and offer acceleration to cloud applications in an “as-a-service”-manner.
