Intel VCA

The Intel VCA (Visual Computing Accelerator) combines the performance of Intel Xeon E3 and E5 platforms together in one system for visual understanding tasks such as object recognition plus media transcoding and virtual graphics such as virtual hosted workstations and desktop cloud gaming.

Proof of Concept

We want you to be sure that Intel VCA meets your requirements, so provide the ability to try your own data on one of our servers as a Proof of Concept. Hosted in a secure datacentre, we will provide you with remote access to an Intel VCA so you can evaluate and benchmark it.
