Cloud Services

Accelerate your applications using Intel® FPGA programming tools on the cloud to program Intel® FPGAs in a high-performance computing environment provided by Nimbix. Intel provides the Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Software, Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™, and the ModelSim*- Intel® FPGA edition software on the Nimbix* cloud platform.

Nimbix specializes in customizable computing services and provides a web interface to your virtual desktops, which enables you to use Intel® FPGA software from any computer.

How it works:

Benefits: With the availability of Intel® FPGA programming software on the cloud, you don’t have to worry about:

  • Upgrading your hardware: Deploy your designs on newer, bigger, better devices without upgrading your hardware, memory or servers. This cloud-based solution is ideal if your program requires massive amounts of compute power, and you would typically have had to build a rack of servers and optimize them for specific workloads. Access it all with the click of a button. 
  • Maintaining your hardware: Run your hardware acceleration without the ever-increasing cost and hassle of maintaining your hardware. The availability of Intel® FPGA tools on the cloud allows our customers to reduce costs by providing servers on-demand without making large capital investments.
  • Managing your licenses: With the simple pay-as-you-go model, simply log in, select the compute resource, and go! The Intel® Quartus® Prime Software usage will be billed along with the compute resource usage. To make it even better, the Intel® Quartus® Prime Software is currently free on the cloud!
  • Downloading and installing software: With the machine ready for you, we take care of the download and installation of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Software for you. All you need to do is simply log in and access Intel® FPGA tools on the cloud.
