The Xilinx App Store makes it easy for you to evaluate, purchase, and deploy accelerated applications. You can be deploying effortlessly in the cloud with AWS or running your apps on-premise in under 10 minutes!
How does it work?
It is simple. Our apps are packaged in DRM-enabled docker containers with high security that offer easy credit card check out. Not only can you check out quickly, but we offer different subscription plans that allow you to evaluate apps for free before purchasing. In just 3 steps you can evaluate, purchase and deploy accelerated applications.
New Test Drive Feature
Recently, we provided the end-users with a more interesting way to get started – that is Test Drive, a cloud-based free web execution on target Alveo applications. As a user, the only thing needed is a single Xilinx account and one-click button to run the built-in examples or customized examples, no cloud account nor local cloud set up required.
The biggest advantage of this evaluation flow is that the essence of the solution is directly displayed before the user decides whether to download the docker on-premise or not, therefore it is truly “Taste first and buy later”, which brings a smooth user experience and also provides the solution provider with the best opportunity to display.
Relying on AWS F1, there are currently 4 applications that are enabled with the Test Drive evaluation flow. You can find the AI-based Video Super-Resolution acceleration from BlueDot, the highly efficient signal-level genomic database analysis acceleration on FPGA by Huxelerate, and the True Random Number Generator IP solutions which are widely adopted in networking and security by Secure-IC and Xiphera.
Of course, the app catalog is expanding every day from FPGA accelerated visual search engine, adaptive HDR converter, true random number generator and more! Browse the app container catalog and find the right application for your needs.
