CXL™ Consortium

Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) is a new high-speed CPU-to-Device and CPU-to-Memory interconnect designed to accelerate next-generation data center performance. The CXL Consortium was founded in early 2019 and was incorporated in Q3 of 2019. CXL technology maintains memory coherency between the CPU memory space and memory on attached devices, which allows resource sharing for higher performance, reduced software stack complexity, and lower overall system cost. This permits users to simply focus on target workloads as opposed to the redundant memory management hardware in their accelerators.

The SNIA Compute, Memory, & Storage Initiative (CMSI) Marketing Committee is responsible for planning and managing CMSI related marketing, PR activities and events and activities (e.g., requirements collection). This committee manages a budget and activities to support web training/demonstrations, trade show attendance and messaging, and CMSI related outbound communications. CMSI Marketing Committee has access to SNIA Marketing tools, including mailing list of 40K+ individuals, webinars, educational library, and other industry marketing materials.

This relationship will be focused on joint marketing efforts, specifically between the CXL Marketing Work Group and the SNIA/CMSI Marketing Committee.
