Plunify, a leading design optimization technology provider, announced availability of Plunify InTime through the Plunify Cloud platform for on-demand development, optimization, testing and deployment of Xilinx field programmable gate array (FPGA) designs in the cloud using Vivado Design Suite, HLx Edition.
Developing the cloud
Plunify is the first Xilinx partner to offer development with the Vivado Design Suite in the cloud. The Plunify Cloud platform is a solution that harnesses cloud computing’s value in solving IT bottlenecks such as scaling and provisioning at a competitive cost. It is a one-stop billing and licensing portal as well, assisting developers make the best use of the cloud as a development and test environment.
Vice President of solutions marketing at Xilinx, Ramine Roane said that their collaboration with Plunify enables FPGA designers to leverage the flexibility and scalability of the cloud to compile designs in Vivado at scale and reduce turnaround time. Additionally, designers now are able to take advantage of Plunify’s InTime capabilities to quickly optimize design performance.
Vice President of Business Development at Plunify, Kirvy Teo said that FPGA designers are not IT specialists. They work closely with Xilinx so that users can leverage the cloud securely with a single button click in Vivado without requiring complicated IT setup and security issues. The capability enables greater flexibility for FPGA design teams to move their development workflows to the cloud at a moment’s notice during times of peak demand.
