"Amazon's decision to put FPGAs in its cloud infrastructure is a powerful step forward to putting the vast benefits of heterogeneous compute in all hands," said Des Wilson, CEO of Ryft. "With our proven history of delivering supercharged yet easy-to-use heterogeneous compute accelerators to a broad range of customers, Ryft's virtual instance of the Ryft ONE is a natural fit to enable AWS' cloud customers to gain tremendous value from this new offering."
The initial release of Ryft Virtual to the AWS marketplace in Q1 2017 leverages Elasticsearch, the world's most popular open source search engine used in today's websites and mobile applications and built into logging, security and analytics systems. Optimized for full-text querying across any type of data, Elasticsearch supports complex Levenshtein distance searches up to a distance of two. However, customers often require more than a distance of two in cases when there are misspellings or abbreviations, there are many permutations of the same words, or when lots of transcriptions exist in the data. To solve this, using Ryft Virtual on AWS' F1 instance enables additional search capabilities, including:
- Eliminating any indexing requirement, so distance values can be very large — as high as 10 or more — depending on the search string size.
- Searching any field in Elasticsearch JSON records using Levenshtein techniques.
- Speeding searches to many gigabytes per second due to the true hardware parallelization afforded by FPGA-accelerated heterogeneous architectures.
