Title: LeaseWeb’s experience building a Media Cloud with ultra-powerful servers using FPGA 
Speaker: Julien Lehmann
Location: Content Everywhere Hub Theatre, 14.J10
Date and Time: Saturday 16 September, 11:00 – 11:20am

Synopsis: 
Traditional servers not only use large amounts of power and generate heat, they are also slow. GPU-based infrastructure is costly and not powerful enough for fast live processing. FPGA is a revolutionary technology that provides both the necessary speed and low latencies required by the high-quality live production market. FPGA technology is, however, difficult to use and program. LeaseWeb will share its experience in building a Media Cloud based on servers using FPGA, which are 30 times more powerful than any CPU-based server. This service complements its current Cloud and CDN offerings specifically targeted at broadcasters.
