The Data Processing Unit (DPU) has gained recognition as the coveted third socket in data center servers. Find out more about what drives the need for this new class of microprocessors and the key innovations in the Fungible DPU that enables it to tackle the biggest data-centric computing challenges in scale-out data center infrastructure.
Blazing fast datapath computations supporting modern and cloud-native workloads
Ground-breaking data interchange performance realized at massive scale with no performance cliff
Programmable datapath that meets the most stringent requirements today and tomorrow
Data Processing Unit™
The Fungible DPU is purpose-built to address two significant inefficiencies in scale-out data centers: inefficient execution of data-centric computations inside server nodes and inefficient interchange of data among nodes.
The Fungible DPU acts as the data-path hub in each server node, connecting all servers via a high performance technology called TrueFabric™. In this position, the Fungible DPU also enables improved reliability, security and infrastructure composability at no additional cost.
Recognized as the third socket in data centers alongside the CPU and GPU, the Fungible DPU is in prime position to power next generation compute, network, storage, security and analytics platforms.
The network is an instrumental component in enabling high performance, large-scale disaggregated infrastructure. Learn how TrueFabric, a standards-based network technology embedded in the Fungible DPU™, maximizes the value of the network - delivering a truly general and powerful computing infrastructure.
The broad capabilities and flexibilities of the Fungible DPU™ is enabled by its programmability. Watch this video to learn how the Fungible DPU is carefully architected to address a plethora of use cases - enabled by a suite of software solutions that provides an agile and future-proof experience for Fungible DPU users.
The Fungible DPU™ is a new class of microprocessor that will power data-centric infrastructure. A data-centric infrastructure is one in which compute and storage servers contain DPUs to perform data-centric computations and connect servers.
NVMe-oF has enabled a new thinking around high-performance and large scale disaggregation. The Fungible DPU™ allows data center infrastructure to break free from the limitations of HCI, enabling high performance and reliable disaggregated storage at all scales.
Perimeter security is inadequate in modern data centers. Existing approaches suffer from insufficient security processing bandwidth, necessitating compromises to security solutions. The Fungible DPU™ offers a no-compromise security solution that provides protection for all traffic.
“Current compute technologies fall short in the vendor’s ability to create an ultra-low latency and ultra-scalable solution for high bandwidth data movement. The industry needs a holistic and end-to-end solution that can disaggregate and compose infrastructure resources at cloud scale.”
— Ashish Nadkarni, Group VP of Worldwide Infrastructure at IDC
"The Fungible DPU™, which is optimized for data-centric compute, enables line rate storage and security data services, unleashing the full capabilities and blazing fast performance of NVMe SSDs over the network."
— Young Sohn, President and CSO for Samsung Electronics and Chairman, HARMAN
"We are excited to be working with Fungible to address large-scale network challenges in data centers and beyond. Fungible’s TrueFabric technology has demonstrated game-changing performance and latency characteristics that allow efficient disaggregation of all resources at data center scale."
