Use cases

100Gbps Network DPI, Content Extraction
Deep packet inspection (DPI) is an advanced method of examining and managing network traffic. It is a form of packet filtering that locates, identifies, classifies, reroutes or blocks packets with specific data or code payloads that conventional packet filtering, which examines only packet headers, cannot detect. DPI combines the functionality of an intrusion detection system (IDS) and an Intrusion prevention system (IPS) with a traditional stateful firewall. This combination makes it possible to detect certain attacks that neither the IDS/IPS nor the stateful firewall can catch on their own. Stateful firewalls, while able to see the beginning and end of a packet flow, cannot catch events on their own that would be out of bounds for a particular application
MongoDB Acceleration using Grovf's MonetX Platform
Databases provide a wealth of functionality to a wide range of applications. Yet, there are tasks for which they are less than optimal, for instance when processing becomes more complex or the data is less structured. As data is exploding exponentially only CPU based systems no longer provide real-time insights to businesses in a cost-effective way. At Grovf we designed a Monet – A FPGA based smart memory extension for near memory data processing. Monet implemented on top of Xilinx’s Alveo U50 acceleration card and once plugged into server’s PCIe bus acts as a standard RAM memory for the Linux operating system with in-memory compute API capability.
Security Log Analytics
Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more innovative. Cybersecurity brings dual challenge of low-latency detection and remediation of advanced threats, and batch analysis of log data from servers, firewalls, applications and security systems. Considering how fast new threats and attacks emerge, Big Data performance and the use of new types of software and hardware accelerators is becoming more critical.
Financial Fraud/Risk Analytics
A fraud risk assessment is an essential element of an organization’s fight against fraud. The topic of risk continues to be of critical importance across financial services segments. While there are many forms of risk, the most common form of risk across all financial segments is surrounding cybercrime and fraud. There is also a post-financial crisis regulatory aspect of risk management that forces lenders to know precisely how much capital they need in reserve. Keep too much and you tie up capital unnecessarily, lowering profit. Keep too little and you run afoul of Basel III regulations.
User Sentiment Analytics
The promise of artificial intelligence (AI) is to make work and life more productive. But to do so, AI needs to better understand humans, which are the most complex organisms on Earth. A significant element of AI’s limitations, to date, is understanding humans and, more specifically, human emotion. In the past few years, however, accelerated access to data (primarily social media feeds and digital video), cheaper compute power, and evolving deep learning combined with natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision are enabling technologists to watch and listen to humans with the intention of analyzing their sentiments and emotions. A better understanding of emotion will help AI technology create more empathetic customer and healthcare experiences, drive our cars, enhance teaching methods, and figure out ways to build better products that meet our need

In 2018, there was generated more data than in the entire previous human history. Current processors have reached their physical limit and are not capable to provide the desired business value.
