TitleData Store Acceleration-as-a-Service on Amazon FPGA Instances

Abstract: This paper describes the use of rENIAC’s Distributed Data Engine on FPGA-based AWS F1 instance to deliver higher throughput and lower latency within a scale-out architecture.  The Distributed Data Engine is architected to address bottlenecks involved in any data infrastructure workloads. Our case study shows 10x reduction in latency and 9x increase in throughput with no software change for an existing Cassandra Database customer resulting in significant value-add to end customer business. rENIAC’s unique approach to deploy F1 instance as a network service eliminates the need to re-architect or recompile application code.
