The EDRA project: Bringing Efficient Reconfigurable Architectures to the Amazon Cloud for Bioinformatics Applications
Wednesday, September 2
1:15 pm - 1:25 pm



EDRA is a Horizon 2020 FET Launchpad project, focusing on the commercialization of the Decoupled Access Execution Reconfigurable (DAER) framework – developed within the FET-HPC EXTRA project – on Amazon’s Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) FPGA infrastructure. The project targets the high-performance computing (HPC) market by offering a ‘one-stop’ solution to accelerate compute-bound applications – that is, applications where the time taken to complete the task is determined mainly by processor speed. During the industrial & research project event, EDRA will present and demonstrate the architecture of its virtual machine deployed on Amazon’s cloud FPGA-support infrastructure that accelerates RAxML, a tool for phylogenetic analysis and post-analysis of large phylogenies.
