Cloud computing has become the new computing paradigm. For cloud computing, virtualization is necessary to enable isolation between users, high flexibility and scalability, high security, and maximized utilization of hardware resources.

We have seen that the proposed FPGA virtualization framework provided excellent performance isolation, scalability, and flexibility. With an online reconfiguration overhead of about 1ms and 1.12% single-core performance loss, it achieves 1.07x – 1.69x and 1.88x – 3.12x performance improvement compared with the baseline design. The virtualized FPGA design also achieves great isolation and linearity to hardware resources. It will help further reduce TCO of all deep learning applications in the cloud.
