Metal FS is a near-storage compute framework that combines FPGA compute kernels (‘operators’) with a file system. It is open-source on GitHub.
It currently supports CAPI-enabled FPGA cards in IBM POWER systems.
Development and simulation of operators is possible using only free tools (x86_64).
The tutorial will cover how to create a Metal FS FPGA image that consists of pre-defined operators as well as a custom image transformation kernel.
If you have access to a POWER8/POWER9 system equipped with a suitable FPGA, please follow the deployment guide.
Refer to these guides for advanced Metal FS use cases:
