Fungible’s DPUs to skyrocket datacenter performance


Post Tags

Fungible, an ambitious startup from California, has released its first products, the F1 and S1 data processing units (DPUs) that promise to radically improve performance and cut power consumption of hyperscale datacenters. The DPUs will sit between the CPU and the network fabric and perform data-centric computations at speeds well beyond those offered by processors. 

Nowadays performance and efficiency of scale-out datacenters heavily depend on data exchange between nodes as well as data-centric computations. Each byte gets into a server via its network interface, processed by the CPU (or GPU, or FPGA) and gets stored locally.
