DPUs support the offloading of network and security services from the main CPUs on the VxRail nodes.
ADPU is installed in the factory on the VxRail node instead of a standard Ethernet adapter card. The DPU differs from a traditional Ethernet adapter card because ESXio is installed on the device, and the DPU is configured with its own CPU.
- The VxRail cluster must be running a minimum version of VxRail 8.0.010.
- The VxRail nodes are configured in the factory with qualified and supported DPUs.
- The data center network supporting the VxRail cluster can support the physical network speed requirements of the DPU.
