FPGA-based Hardware Acceleration

Supervisor: Philippe Bonnet
Semester: Fall 2020
Tags: FPGA, SSD, computational storage

Field Programmable Gate Arrays are now an integral part of public cloud infrastructures. You can for example run customized FPGA instances on AWS. A project focuses on FPGA-based hardware acceleration at the level of an SSD Flash Translation Layer, at the level of a Database storage manager or at the level of the database client. You will be able to experiment with FPGAs in the lab and on AWS. We expect that it will be possible to collaborate with Samsung around SmartSSD.
