    What's going on behind FPGA-based Clouds?

    Hi every one,

    I don't know if this is a good place to ask such question or not, but it's my last hope to find the answer.
    These days we see a lot of cloud service companies (like Amazon) are providing their customers with a new service called FPGA-based cloud. I want to know what's happening behind the seen and how do they manage such service?
    I watched a lot of Xilinx and Amazon videos about this service (AWS EC2 F1), but none of them helped me to understand what's actually going on. My questions are as follow:
    1. Does Amazon allocate a real FPGA chip for the service customer, or it's a kind of virtual one like a VPS?
    2. If Amazon allocates a real FPGA for me, is it also dedicated at time I'm using it?
    3. If we have a GIANT size RTL code (which could not be place on a single FPGA chip), is it going to take a part our RTL and feed it to different chips?

    Did I misunderstand/forget anything at all?

    Thanks a lot.

    As I see it, attend a XDF and catch them directly!

    However I already got the answer from the Xilinx forum:

    Yes indeed suggestions are to be laughed at by people like you would come once in a blue moon (Join Date:Sep 2014, Posts:28, Helped:0/0), ask questions which are duplicated in other forums, take the answer and disappear until the need arises again.
