Microservices and Cloud-Native Applications

The Unified Compute Framework lets developers build and combine accelerated microservices across domains into real-time, multimodal AI applications. Every microservice has a bounded domain context (vision AI, conversational AI, data analytics, graphics rendering) and can be independently deployed, managed, and scaled within the application. The abstraction of each domain from the application reduces the need for low-level domain and platform knowledge.

UCF includes validated & deployment-ready microservices to accelerate application development. New and custom microservices can also be created using NVIDIA SDKs.

Different cloud-native applications used in various cases

Low-Code Design Tools

Latest user interface of the UCF low-code design tool

UCF includes a set of low-code design tools to create, configure, and package applications for cloud deployment.

Designs are visualized as a graph of data processing nodes. Using drag and drop operations, you can quickly create and combine these nodes to build powerful applications that incorporate different AI modalities, graphics, and other processing functions. Design rules and other validation checks built into the IDE ensure that UCF applications are correct-by-construction.

Once complete, you can package UCF applications into containers and easily deploy them on the cloud or on-prem using Helm charts.
