Transforming the Data Center with NVIDIA DPU's

The NVIDIA® BlueField® data processing unit (DPU) is an unprecedented advancement for modern data centers. By offloading, accelerating, and isolating diverse advanced networking, storage, and security services, BlueField DPUs provide a secure and accelerated infrastructure for all workloads. BlueField DPUs combine high-performance computing, full infrastructure-on-a-chip programmability and high-performance networking to handle the most demanding workloads.


around the server

The DPU architecture shields the data center security policies from the host CPU while establishing a zero-trust data center domain in the periphery of each server.

Data storage for
expanding workloads

With NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) Storage Direct, encryption, elastic storage, data integrity, compression, and deduplication, the NVIDIA BlueField-2 DPU provides a high-performance storage network with remote storage latencies that rival direct-attached storage.

High-performance computing,
efficient networks

The BlueField-2 DPU is a high-performance accelerator for data center services. With up to 200 gigabits per second (Gb/s) Ethernet and InfiniBand, BlueField-2 provides the transfer performance for both traditional applications and advanced GPU-accelerated AI while offloading the host's processor cores.

Software defined infrastructure

The NVIDIA DOCA Software Development Kit (SDK) enables developers to easily create high-performance, software-defined, cloud-native, DPU-accelerated services using industry-standard APIs.
