iTWireTV interview: Ami Badani and John F. Kim on the NVIDIA Bluefield DPU


Move over CPU, make way GPU; there’s a third type of silicon coming to a server near you - the DPU or data processing unit. In fact, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang says it will be one of the three major pillars of computing going forwards and VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram says it will become ubiquitous within the next decade of computing.

To help us understand what the DPU is all about and why it is so significant we’re joined by NVIDIA VP Networking Ami Badani and NVIDIA Director of Storage Marketing and Bluefield DPU John F. Kim.

In our conversation, Ami and John explain what a DPU is, and why NVIDIA has developed the Bluefield DPU. They explain how this system-on-a-chip is a key part of NVIDIA’s enterprise roadmap and what it means for the next-gen data centre.

What's more, it's coming to a server near you. The supply chain is already in gear with OEMs, as well as through NVIDIA’s partnership with VMware and through its co-founding role of the Linux Foundation.

As you'll hear from Ami and John, the Bluefield DPU provides greater performance with reduced power consumption, while ensuring - and advancing - security.

It’s a fascinating topic and it’s clear from Ami and John’s explanation that the Bluefield DPU is the architectural change for servers and data centres that will shape the next decade.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
