Vision

Due to the growing data volume and emerging demand for real-time analytics, businesses are increasingly required to build up accelerated data processing capabilities. 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. FPGAs boost the energy efficiency of data center servers and can substantially reduce TCO.

Our Mission and Value Contribution

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