Business and digital transformation strategy thought leader Dez Blanchfield regularly posts podcasts in a series titled “Conversations with Dez” about topics of interest to the technology industry. He recently interviewed Jim Dworkin, Senior Director of the Cloud Business Unit in the Programmable Solutions Group at Intel and the two have a wide-ranging discussion that touches on data center architecture and making FPGAs easier to use to accelerate various workloads at scale within the data center. The two also discuss the roles of FPGA-based SmartNICs, which can “hard wire” data flows within the data center to build strategic pathways to reduce data movement, accelerate processing rates, speed time to market, and lower total costs of ownership. In addition, their discussion covers the broader use of Intel® FPGAs and Intel® eASIC™ structured ASICs, the new AI-optimized Intel® Stratix® 10 NX FPGA, and the use of Intel® Open FPGA Stack (Intel® OFS) and Intel® oneAPI toolkits to ease the adoption of all forms of Intel® XPU acceleration including FPGAs.
