NVIDIA DOCA 1.2 software framework now available for BlueField DPUs

NVIDIA today released the latest version of its DOCA 1.2 software framework for NVIDIA BlueField DPUs. Designed to support the NVIDIA BlueField ecosystem and developer community, “DOCA is key to unlocking the potential of the DPU by offering services to offload, accelerate, and isolate infrastructure application services from the CPU,” said NVIDIA.

The DOCA software framework was developed by NVIDIA to bring together APIs, drivers, libraries, sample code, documentation, services and pre-built containers to simplify and accelerate application development and deployment to BlueField DPUs on each data center node. “Together, DOCA and BlueField create an isolated and secure service domain for network, security, storage and infrastructure management that is ideal for a zero trust strategy.”

“DOCA App Shield provides host surveillance that enables cybersecurity providers to develop accelerated Intrusion Detection System (IDS) solutions to detect an attack on any physical or virtual machine. It can transmit data about the application status to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) or Extended Detection and Response (XDR) tools and also improve forensic investigations. When a host is compromised, attackers typically take advantage of security controls to move sideways across data center networks to other servers and devices. App Shield enables security teams to shield their application processes, continuously check their integrity and in turn detect malicious activity. “

“Precise timing is a critical ability to enable and accelerate distributed applications from edge to core. DOCA Firefly is a timing service for data centers that supports extremely precise time synchronization everywhere. With clock synchronization at the nanosecond level, you can activate a new wide range of time-critical and delay-sensitive applications. It enables data consistency, exact order of events and causality analyzes, such as BlueField’s application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) hardware engines are capable of stamping packets of data at full speed with breakthrough accuracy in the nanosecond range. “
