"Supermicro is NVIDIA's close technology collaborator and is ready to deliver end to end cloud solutions, and edge using NVIDIA DPUs", stated Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "Leveraging Supermicro's well known rapid time-to-market capabilities, we expect to offer many of the industry's first systems incorporating the BlueField-2 DPU to boost performance on all accelerated workloads for customers in growing dynamic markets."
Many of Supermicro's products can take advantage of the latest in DPU acceleration technologies from NVIDIA. Supermicro's SuperBlade has GPU blade servers built on PCIe Gen4.0 along with a non-blocking 200Gbps HDR InfiniBand switch, which provides the infrastructure needed for DPUs to offload data management tasks from the CPU.
The new NVIDIA BlueField-2 DPU combines a programmable multi-core ARM CPU, state-of-the-art 200G/100G SmartNIC networking, high-performance PCIe interface, and a powerful set of networking, storage, and security accelerators. The NVIDIA DPU offloads critical tasks and frees up the host CPU to run applications while enhancing security, efficiency, and manageability for servers running any operating system or hypervisor.
"NVIDIA DPUs are becoming the most critical element of a secure accelerated data centre, a required component for modern times", stated Manuvir Das, head of Enterprise Computing at NVIDIA. "By incorporating the BlueField-2 DPU into their future line-up, Supermicro is giving their customers that extra edge required in todays race to build the modern data centre."
