You can develop and deploy FPGA-accelerated cloud apps using the Xilinx SDAccel development environment with no downloads and no local FPGA hardware using a new Web-based service from Nimbix. This service runs on a Nimbix platform named JARVICE, which is specifically designed for Bid Data and Big Compute workloads.


Here’s a new 2.5-minute video demonstrating the Nimbix platform in action:






You can develop apps and deploy them on JARVICE. The Nimbix service is available as a subscription and as a pay-as-you-go service for only a few bucks per hour.
