Cloud Services

Accelerate your applications using Intel® FPGA programming tools on the cloud to program Intel FPGAs in a high-performance computing environment provided by Nimbix. Intel provides the Intel Quartus® Prime design software, Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL™, and the ModelSim*- Intel FPGA Edition software on the Nimbix* cloud platform.

The new cloud service features Intel Arria® 10 FPGAs and enables you to conduct design intensive work ranging from FPGA evaluation, to designing with register-transfer level language (RTL), or using OpenCL for accelerating workloads running on FPGAs. You can compile, develop, test, and deploy your FPGA design on the Nimbix cloud.

Nimbix specializes in customizable computing services and provides a web interface to your virtual desktops, which enables you to use Intel FPGA software from any computer. 

How It Works


With the availability of Intel FPGA programming software on the cloud, you don’t have to worry about:

  • Upgrading your hardware: Deploy your designs on newer, bigger, better devices without upgrading your hardware, memory or servers. This cloud-based solution is ideal if your program requires massive amounts of compute power, and you would typically have had to build a rack of servers and optimize them for specific workloads. Access it all with the click of a button. 
  • Maintaining your hardware: Run your hardware acceleration without the ever-increasing cost and hassle of maintaining your hardware. The availability of Intel FPGA tools on the cloud allows our customers to reduce costs by providing servers on-demand without making large capital investments.
  • Managing your licenses: With the simple pay-as-you-go model, simply log in, select the compute resource, and go! The Intel Quartus Prime software usage will be billed along with the compute resource usage. To make it even better, the Intel Quartus Prime software is currently free on the cloud!
  • Downloading and installing software: With the machine ready for you, we take care of the download and installation of the Intel Quartus Prime software for you. All you need to do is simply log in and access Intel FPGA tools on the cloud.
