Paper Title: Handling Data-Centric Workloads with DPU-Based Accelerators

Paper Abstract: As the amount of data being processed increases, many systems get bogged down by overhead tasks, such as data transfers, virtualization, encryption/decryption, error-correction coding, deep packet inspection, and compression. Offloading such tasks to DPUs lets compute servers spend more of their time running applications. Using a high-performance DPU to accelerate data-centric workloads allows architects to improve data center efficiency and reduce TCO.
