Benchmark: Accelerating PostGIS performance with FPGA
Measuring the impact of FPGA acceleration on PostGIS concurrent query performance at Toyota.
Benchmarking PostGIS performance at Toyota
FPGA-equipped servers enhance free, open source Postgres with massive parallel processing to speed up and scale the database.
In August 2019, Toyota Motor Corporation benchmarked FPGA-accelerated PostGIS performance for a connected car project.
The parallel processing introduced by the FPGA provided faster, more stable PostGIS query performance under concurrent load vs. non-FPGA accelerated PostGIS.
This white paper explains the benchmark setup and results.
- PostGIS & Postgres 11.5
- Intel Arria 10 GX FPGA
- Swarm64 DA FPGA extension for Postgres
