Nvidia unveiled a line of new products at the GTU Technology Conference 2021 on Monday, including the world’s first-ever data-processing unit (DPU) which computes data using an ARM-based data center. Among those technologies unveiled at the conference, which took place in Silicon Valley, California were its BlueField-3 DPU, the company’s next-generation of data center processors developed in Israel, among others. These technologies will make Nvidia a leading-performer of the next-generation of devices, and have been developed all over the world. In Israel, the company has 2,400 employees who are employed at seven development centers, and worked on the BlueField-3 DPU.
gives developers a complete, open software platform for building software-defined,
hardware-accelerated networking, storage, security and management applications running on
BlueField DPUs. This allows applications which use BlueField DPU to monitor thousands of DPUs across the data center as well as through libraries.Currently, Nvidia integrates its processors into leading server manufacturers, such as Dell Technologies, Inspur, Lenovo and Supermicro. Cloud service providers across the world are also using BlueField DPUs to accelerate workloads, including Baidu, JD.com and UCloud. Some of the company’s technologies also launched at the conference include the Nvidia Grace, a central processing Arm-based processor that will deliver 10x the performance of today's fastest servers and named after Grace Hopper, a computer programming pioneer and US Navy rear admiral. Others include the Nvidia Drive Atlan, an autonomous vehicle platform that will power the next-generation of autonomous vehicles; Jarvis Interactive Conversational AI, an interactive customer-service platform which understands languages; and Nvidia Omniverse Enterprise, the first platform that enables teams to design in 3D simultaneously and work together in real-time.
