Enzian is a research computer built by the Systems Group at ETH Zurich.

As a research computer, Enzian is designed for computer systems software research and deliberately over-engineered. Enzian node has a big server-class CPU closely coupled to a large FPGA, with ample main memory and network bandwidth on both sides.

Enzian demo video from the IAP Cloud Workshop now online

A couple of weeks ago, we presented Enzian at the Industry-Academia Partnership (IAP) University of Washington University/UC Berkeley/NYU Workshop on the Future of Cloud Computing Applications and Infrastructure.

We built Enzian to have a platform for our research into operating systems, databases, hardware acceleration, machine learning, networking, and high-performance computing, and because there was nothing comparable out there that we could get hold of otherwise.

Now that it works, we’d like to make Enzian systems available to the rest of the research community. If you want to work with Enzian, or if you might be able to help us make it more widely available, please contact us!
