Aupera Real-time AI Video Analytics for Smart City

By the end of 2021, over one billion surveillance cameras will be installed worldwide, according to IHS Markit’s latest report. Cameras are being deployed everywhere – across cities, retail stores, manufacturing lines, industrial facilities, and buildings. But the ability to extract insights from the enormous amount of video data has become more challenging than ever. Aupera, a Video AI innovator, has focused on delivering highly efficient and agile video AI solutions based on Xilinx FPGA platforms. These solutions enable real-time intelligence from existing installed cameras using ultra-low latency AI analytics.

Watch this webinar to learn Aupera’s successful case study in Smart Building, Smart City, Smart Retail, and Work Safety segments. And we’ll show you how to quickly deploy Aupera’s video AI analytics solution for your AIoT workload.

Aupera Technologies Disrupts Online Video Processing with New Platform Powered by Xilinx

October 15, 2018 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–(Xilinx Developer Forum)– Aupera Technologies, Inc. a leading technology innovator dedicated in providing Video Processing Solutions in Data Centers, announced the General Availability of its Aup2600 series system based on the latest Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC, tackling the challenges faced by video streaming applications at scale requiring real-time video transcoding and video content analytics.

The AuperaTM Aup260x distributed video processing system, is a disruptive technology for data centers, as it negates the need for traditional x86 processors. A fully loaded system, contains 48 Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC, and handles 380 concurrent video streams, delivering 3.3x more performance at 1/10th the energy cost, while using 1/10th the rack space compared to traditional x86 solutions.

Aupera is also closely collaborating with Xilinx to develop various Machine Learning algorithms, enabling real-time AI-based video analytics and search functionality. These new capabilities will be hardware-accelerated on the Aup260x without the need to replace or upgrade any hardware.

“Our high-density FPGA-based video processing system is now qualified for large scale deployment. It is providing a truly disruptive online video processing solution that will help our customers achieve 33x performance per watt, at a fraction of TCO, while delivering high quality video service to end users. We believe we are changing the landscape of video processing in data centers,” said Roy Liao, CEO of Aupera Technologies.

“We are extremely excited to see such innovation coming from our partner Aupera, who are using our technology and delivering a game-changing platform for large-scale video streaming applications. This is also helping us deliver on our ‘data center first’ strategy,” Said Ramine, VP of software product planning at Xilinx, “We will continue to closely collaborate with Aupera throughout the deployment, to extend the capabilities of this platform, using our adaptable hardware and AI technology.”

Aupera Technologies is showcasing their system at the XDF Beijing show, and will be giving a breakout session titled “AI power FPGA based video transcoding for real time application”.

Aupera Technologies Reveals Next-Gen NVMeoF JBOF Prototype Achieving 16M IOPS

August 07, 2018 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aupera Technologies today announced an ASIC based 25G/100G Ethernet NVMeoF JBOF[3] Prototype System, which utilizes a hardware NVMeoF bridge and 25G/100G Ethernet switch fabrics, achieving native NVMe (PCIe3.0) SSD performance. Designed for scale-out, the new JBOF system significantly simplifies the deployment of high-performance storage systems in data centers.

This JBOF system is a standard 19-inch 2U chassis and supports up to 24 NVMe-oF SSD modules. The NVMe-oF SSD module adopted the interposer solution, jointly developed by Aupera and Toshiba Memory Corporation. The interposer is based on the Marvell® 88SN2400 NVMe-oF SSD converter controller, enabling dual 25Gbit RDMA network ports and NVMe-oF bridging. The built-in dual-star switch matrix provides dual 6 x 100G uplink ports and dual 24 x 25G downlink ports to SSDs for non-blocking access. The prototype system achieves 16 million IOPS[3] (4KB random read), while maintaining extremely low power consumption. The JBOF chassis has also integrated the BMC system for chassis configuration, health monitoring and remote management, which is ready for carrier grade deployment.

“With this whole new system architecture, combined with Aupera’s existing high density FPGA-based video processing solutions, we have achieved another mile-stone step towards building a next-generation video data center platform. It has been a great pleasure to work with Toshiba and Marvell on the most advanced technologies in the industry. We are very excited about the system performance achieved so far,” said Aupera CEO, Roy Liao.

NVMe over Fabrics is expected to be widely adopted in the cloud data center and enterprise markets. Toshiba Memory’s near-native performance of NVMe SSDs, combined with Aupera’s NVMeoF JBOF system, will ensure SSDs peak performance, simplify deployment, and facilitate large-scale adoption in the data center.

Aupera Technologies and Toshiba Memory will demonstrate this new JBOF prototype system at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California from August 7 – 9 in booth #951(Aupera) and #307(Toshiba).
