New NPv1 virtual machines are now generally available
Published date: 04 May, 2021
NPv1 series virtual machines are a new addition to the Azure product offering. These instances are powered by Xilinx Alveo U250 FPGAS. These highly-programmable accelerators benefit a variety of computationally intensive workloads such as genomics, image-processing, security, data analysis and more. The NP series offering is based upon the commercially available U250 from Xilinx and uses a standard shell easing the difficulties of migrating existing FPGA workloads & solutions to the cloud.
New Xilinx Alveo U250 FPGA NPv1 VMs are now generally available in West US 2, East US, West Europe, and Southeast Asia.
