During the 30-hour NVIDIA DPU virtual hackathon, participating teams worked on technologies for furthering advancements in AI , cloud and accelerated computing. Our GREYCORTEX team was among them, and our solution was awarded third place.
The goal of the hackathon was to validate the potential of using DPU (Data Processing Unit) accelerator cards for AI , networking, security and storage. The teams worked on developing a solution demonstrating the possibilities of using DPU in a data centre infrastructure.
In a competition made up of teams from all over Europe, the jury awarded third place to the project of the GREYCORTEX team, consisting of Petr Chmelař, Marek Brychta, Ondřej Kvasnica, Marina Volkova and Jozef Mlích. Our team used NVIDIA BlueField DPU cards for a DDoS attack detection and mitigation system.
With the DPU , Mendel will be able to process traffic faster, smarter and at a lower cost than before.
“ At GREYCORTEX , we are involved in a number of research projects outside of Mendel product development, trying to anticipate where market and customer needs will go. We are looking for ways to solve these problems and challenges,” says Pavel Jurka, CTO of GREYCORTEX .
One of the topics we have been working on over the past year is the processing of big data streams and their analysis using advanced methods that leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence. At the same time, we are looking at how to actively defend against such advanced attacks, which can be aided by hardware-level acceleration.
Participation in the hackathon followed our testing of the latest generation of NVIDIA BlueField DPU cards, which allowed us to demonstrate our intentions for how to use DPU in practice.
“ We hope that this technology will move into production deployment in the near future and we will be able to use it to provide better security for our customers,” concludes Pavel Jurka.
