The datacenter industry engaged FPGAs over the last years. Microsoft Azure started its FPGA in 2011 and has been deploying at scale since 2015. Intel acquired Altera for $16B in 2016. Leading Cloud Service Providers like AWS, OVH, Alibaba, Baidu, Tencent and Huawei have been deploying FPGAs in 2017 and 2018, with more to come. Dell, EMC and Fujitsu also deployed FPGA-based servers in 2018. This opens a new world of opportunities to boost compute intensive application like video and image processing, data analytics, machine learning, security, financial, AI or genomics.
