VVDN Technologies and Axiado Corporation announced their collaboration on a new hardware-anchored, AI-driven approach to platform security for Open Compute Project (OCP) compliant servers. This collaboration combines VVDN’s expertise in designing and manufacturing OCP-compliant servers with Axiado’s industry-leading DC-SCM control module and Trusted Control/Compute Unit (TCU). With this collaboration, VVDN and Axiado are reshaping the server technology landscape and ushering in a transformative era in data center security with servers driven by Axiado’s pioneering TCUs.
“VVDN is deeply committed to data center excellence,” said Puneet Agarwal, Co-Founder and CEO, VVDN Technologies. “Our relentless pursuit of advanced systems and solutions, especially in secure server design, development, and manufacturing, not only sets us apart in the Indian market but also on the global stage. This dedication is the cornerstone of our technological evolution and growth.”
Key Collaboration Highlights
- OCP Global Summit demonstration: VVDN will demonstrate the OCP-compliant host processor module (HPM) family powered by Axiado’s TCU.
- VVDN’s OCP-compliant HPM family: VVDN is committed to building a comprehensive family of HPM reference designs for OEMs based on the OCP standard, all set to interoperate seamlessly with Axiado’s TCU technology.
- Open RAN/telco and cloud/data center applications: VVDN recognizes an imminent market inflection point for servers in Open RAN/telco and cloud/data center applications, aligning with Axiado’s vision.
Axiado’s partnership with VVDN is the first of many that the company plans to establish with HPM manufacturers to broaden the adoption of its hardware-anchored, AI-driven approach to platform security.
“Axiado is fully aligned with VVDN and with using OCP standards as an anchor for future collaboration,” said Gopi Sirineni, President and CEO, Axiado. “We are committed to forging powerful alliances with ODMs/OEMs, cloud service providers, and the entire security ecosystem, with the goal of fortifying the world’s digital infrastructure and elevating global cybersecurity to unprecedented levels.”
About Axiado’s TCU
The Axiado AX3000/AX2000 TCUs represent a new category of forensic-enabled cybersecurity processors designed to enhance existing zero-trust models. TCUs combine silicon, AI and data collection, and software into a compact, power-efficient SoC with unique AI functionality explicitly designed for security. The single-chip solution is rooted in real-time and proactive AI with pre-emptive threat detection and comprehensive protection, provided by a dedicated coprocessor that allows manufacturers to build safe, secure, and resilient solutions by design and default.
The TCU relies extensively on AI-based real-time threat mitigation with forensic-enabled hardware fingerprints as well as platform monitoring and optimization (clocks/voltages/temperature) using AI and machine learning (ML). The TCU solution includes root of trust (RoT), baseboard management controller (BMC), trusted platform module (TPM), hardware security module, SmartNIC, firewall, and AI and ML technologies.
Demo at 2023 OCP Global Summit
VVDN and Axiado will unveil and demonstrate their Axiado DC-SCM 2.0 module, seamlessly integrated into the VVDN motherboard that is fully compliant with the Open Compute Project DC-SCM data center-ready security standard, at the 2023 OCP Global Summit.
