Yesterday, Intel unveiled its vision for infrastructure processing units (IPUs), programmable networking devices that free up CPU cycles by taking over and intelligently managing system-level infrastructure in data centers. (See “Infrastructure Processing Units (IPUs) intelligently manage and accelerate data center infrastructure.”) The company also announced that IPUs based on Intel® CPUs and Intel® FPGAs are already shipping from Intel and Intel Partners.

If you’d like a deeper dive into IPUs and their application, Guido Appenzeller, chief technology officer with Intel’s Data Platforms Group, has made a 4-minute video giving a concise and easily understood explanation of the IPU concept.
