New Product of Data Processing Unit DPU based on IBM Power 11 (or later Power processors) with Nvidia GPUs for the future Applications

Building a new product of IBM and Nvidia Data Processing Unit, the suggested DPU  may have the following description and capabilities:

1- Using IBM Power 11 instead of Intel Xeon or ARM will make the software licenses and the cyber security more advanced 

2- IBM Power11 or later Power processors have a Quantum safe Cryptography 

3-  IBM Power 11 or later Power processors may  CXL Switching Fabrics and Ethernet 

4- Power 11 or later Power Processors can orchestrate multiple GPUs and the Smart NICs very fast, and also enabling the Nvidia GPUnetIO with DOCA to make the network packet sending, receiving reordering and processing between the Smart NICs with GPU directly without the CPU Intervention.

This Mixture of IBM and Nvidia technologies will push the 5G and 6G networks towards more advanced protected future networks.
