Marvell is introducing its new OCTEON 10 DPU designed to accelerate and process a broad spectrum of security, networking, and storage workloads required by demanding 5G, cloud, carrier, and enterprise datacenter applications.
With the increasing shift of workloads to the cloud, complex security requirements and the growing number of edge devices the demand for data centric compute has accelerated.
By combining compute with best-in-class hardware accelerators, Marvell’s OCTEON 10 DPU offers a significant TCO advantage and features numerous industry firsts, according to the vendor.
“To meet and exceed the growing data processing requirements for network, storage, and security workloads, Marvell focused on significant DPU innovations across compute, hardware accelerators, and high speed I/O,” said John Sakamoto, vice president of Marvell’s Infrastructure Processors Business Unit. “The OCTEON 10 brings compute leadership, supports networking and security workloads exceeding 400G, and incorporates leading edge I/O including DDR5 and PCIe 5.0.”
Unlike other DPU solutions, which are limited to data center use cases, Marvell’s OCTEON 10 is scalable to service the most demanding hyperscale cloud workloads, carrier and enterprise datacenters, 5G wireless transport, SD-WAN, and even fanless networking edge boxes.
To deliver best-in-class power and performance across these applications, each OCTEON 10 device combines the optimal mix of compute, hardware acceleration, data path bandwidth, and industry-leading I/O including PCIe 5.0 and DDR5.
The OCTEON 10 family SDK is an open platform which leverages the Arm ecosystem. The SDK support includes networking, security, and storage stacks, comprehensive DPDK and VPP extensions, and support for virtualization and containers.
