NVIDIA Converged Accelerator Developer Kit
The Supermicro and a NVIDIA Converged Accelerator Developer Kit is an all-in-one kit with the necessary components to start solution development, including a Supermicro SYS-220HE-FTNR server; an NVIDIA converged accelerator, which combines the powerful performance of NVIDIA GPUs with enhanced networking, security, and data processing; and the NVIDIA Aerial™ SDK suite of tools.
By connecting the NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU and the NVIDIA® BlueField-2 DPU, a dedicated path for data transfer is established between the GPU and the network. This eliminates performance bottlenecks of data going through the host CPU.
The convergence of NVIDIA’s GPU and DPU creates a more secure AI processing engine, where data generated at the edge can be sent across the network fully encrypted without traveling over the server PCIe bus, ensuring it’s protected end to end.
The architecture of the NVIDIA converged cards allows GPU processing to be applied directly to traffic as it flows to and from the DPU. This enables a whole new class of applications that involve AI-based networking and security, such as data leak detection, network performance optimization and prediction, and more.
Because the GPU, DPU, and PCIe switch are combined together on a single card, customers can leverage mainstream servers to perform tasks previously only possible with high-end or purpose-built systems. Even edge servers can benefit from the same performance boost that is more typically found in specialized systems.
