We’re excited to have inked Ingram Micro as a primary channel distributor for Alveo data center accelerator cards. Ingram Micro becomes the first broad-based IT distributor to offer the Alveo portfolio to channel partners throughout the U.S.
Data center solution providers now have greater access and enablement resources to market, sell and support Alveo accelerator cards and can more readily deploy Alveo cards with industry standard servers, ultimately optimizing the solutions for customers’ shifting data center workloads, new standards and evolving algorithms.
Available now, the Alveo U200, Alveo U250 and Alveo U280 accelerator cards, which are powered by Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGAs, deliver significant performance advantages in key data center workloads including real-time Artificial Intelligence (AI) inference, video processing and database search. Alveo accelerators also increase adaptability as workloads evolve because they can be reprogrammed, unlike fixed function accelerators like GPUs and ASICs. Customers can reconfigure hardware to optimized Alveo cards for shifting workloads, new standards and updated algorithms, without incurring replacement costs.
We’re seeing strong customer interest in Alveo accelerator cards across a broad set of data center applications. Adding Ingram Micro’s broad reach and expertise in helping channel partners deliver advanced solutions for the data center will allow Xilinx to address this high-growth opportunity through a significant new route to market. Together with Ingram Micro’s growing base of data center solution providers, VARs and complementary server platform vendors, including Dell EMC and Supermicro, end customers will have access to more complete data center solutions, accelerating Xilinx's "data center first" strategy and transition to a platform company.
Alveo accelerators are riding a wave of momentum in the data center. Get on board with us!
