The Benefits of BlueField

Security from the Perimeter to the Server

BlueField DPUs enable a zero-trust, security-everywhere architecture where security goes beyond the data center perimeter to the edge of every server.

Data Storage for the Expanding Workload

With NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF), GPUDirect Storage, encryption, elastic storage, data integrity, decompression, and deduplication, BlueField provides high performance storage access with latencies for remote storage that rival direct attached storage.

High Performance, Efficient Networking

BlueField is a powerful data center services accelerator, delivering up to 400 gigabits per second (Gb/s) of Ethernet and InfiniBand connectivity for both traditional applications and modern GPU-accelerated workloads, while freeing host CPU cores to run applications instead of infrastructure tasks.

Software-Defined Infrastructure

The NVIDIA DOCA™ software development kit (SDK) enables developers to easily create high performance, software-defined, cloud-native, DPU-accelerated services, leveraging industry-standard APIs.
