Minimize Supercomputing Data Center Downtime and Increase Security with NVIDIA Mellanox UFM Cyber-AI
June 22, 2020

Data centers host many users and applications and have become the competitive advantage for research organization and manufacturing companies. Keeping the data center intact and healthy is critical, as operational costs of supercomputers continue to rise, driven by growing scientific computing demands and new security threats. Moreover, malicious users may exploit data center access to misuse compute resources by running prohibited applications, such as crypto currency mining, resulting in unexpected downtimes and higher operating costs. This week, NVIDIA unveiled the Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) Cyber-AI platform, which minimizes downtime and saves OPEX in InfiniBand data centers by harnessing AI-powered  analytics …
