"Key-Value Store Acceleration with OpenPOWER" by Michaela Blott, Senior Staff Research Engineer, Xilinx
-- This presentation discusses the architecture of an accelerated key-value
store appliance which leverages a novel data-flow implementation of
Memcached on an FPGA. The design achieves up to 36X in performance and
power at response times in the microsecond range. Coherent integration
of memory through IBM's Power8 CAPI interface allows both host memory
and coherent-attached flash to be used as the value store.

"Data Center and Cloud Computing Market Landscape and Challenges" by Manoj Roge, Director of Wired and Data Center Solutions, Xilinx
-- This presentation discusses data center and cloud computing market
landscapes, examines technology challenges that limit scaling of cloud
computing and delivers insights into how FPGAs combined with general
purpose processors are transforming next-generation data centers with
tremendous compute horsepower, low-latency and extreme power efficiency.
