This installment of Research for Practice features a curated selection from Gustavo Alonso, who provides an overview of recent developments utilizing field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) in datacenters. As Moore's Law has slowed and the computational overheads of datacenter workloads such as model serving and data processing have continued to rise, FPGAs offer an increasingly attractive point in the trade-off between power and performance. Gustavo's selections highlight early successes and practical deployment considerations that inform the ongoing, high-stakes debate about the future of datacenter- and cloud-based computation substrates. Please enjoy!
