NVIDIA News at Hot Chips 33


Inside the DPU: Tech Talk Describes an Engine Powering Data Center Networks

Cloud services, supercomputers and networking appliances are tapping into the NVIDIA BlueField DPU architecture, now being publicly detailed for the first time. Take a first look under the hood of the NVIDIA BlueField data processing unit (DPU) at NVIDIA’s Hot Chips session, and get an early preview in this blog.

How New Data Center Designs Drive the Need for DPU Offloads and Isolation

Today’s data centers are evolving rapidly and require new types of processors called data processing units, or DPUs. The new requirements demand a specific type of DPU architecture capable of offloading, accelerating, and isolating specific workloads.

On August 23rd at the Hot Chips 33 Conference, NVIDIA silicon architect Idan Burstein will discuss changing data center requirements and how they have driven the architecture of the NVIDIA BlueField DPU family.

BlueField DPU

Securing and Accelerating Cloud Computing Platforms

NVIDIA is building data center-scale computing platforms that transform cloud computing with new levels of performance and efficiency. A key component is NVIDIA BlueField-2, which delivers a range of software-defined, hardware-accelerated infrastructure services. Learn how BlueField-2 DPUs allow cloud service providers, telecom operators, and enterprises build high-performing, efficient, and secure cloud infrastructures.


DPU-Based Hardware Acceleration: A Software Perspective

DPUs promise greater data center efficiency, but low-level-programming requirements have hindered broad adoption. Industry analyst Bob Wheeler investigated how NVIDIA aims to remove this obstacle using the NVIDIA DOCA™ framework, which abstracts the programming of BlueField DPUs.


Program Data Center Infrastructure Acceleration with NVIDIA DOCA

NVIDIA DOCA is a set of libraries, SDKs, and tools for programming the NVIDIA BlueField DPU. Watch this GTC session to learn how DPU developers can offload and accelerate networking, virtualization, security, and storage features to enable sophisticated routing, firewall, and load-balancing applications with DOCA.
