What We Do

Deep learning, machine learning and transcoding are among the most computationally intensive applications facing technology today. The combination of large data sets, high-performance computational capabilities and evolving and improving algorithms have long presented technical challenges that have been difficult to overcome.


NVXL is architecting a brand new technology, polymorphic acceleration, via an on-demand application platform leveraging industry-leading accelerators. This revolutionary compute acceleration platform enables the most demanding applications including deep learning, machine learning, transcoding and more.

NVXL’s polymorphic acceleration technology is ideally suited for compute-intensive applications including deep learning, genomics and transcoding with a revolutionary technology platform that is built from the ground up to accelerate and scale compute performance with industry-leading density and performance/power/cost. Harnessing the power and flexibility of FPGAs, the NVXL acceleration platform integrates seamlessly to frameworks and implements a data flow architecture using dynamically provisioned instances created from a pool of acceleration devices. The NVXL platform is extremely easy to deploy and use, and it abstracts all the low-level details. NVXL, with its massively scalable, software-defined acceleration platform, is shattering the boundaries to enable the next generation of deep learning applications.

With unprecedented flexibility and scale, NVXL is transforming the way compute acceleration is deployed, consumed, and delivered.

At NVXL, we never stop accelerating.
