Abstract: 

Compute Express Link will serve as a new computing backbone that will carry the weight of petabytes of memory shared by heterogenous processors. At the heart of the new CXL fabrics will be software that transforms the hardware into a pool of composable resources for fine-grained provisioning of capacity, performance, availability, and mobility. In this session, Bernie Wu will provide a sneak preview of how CXL will change the datacenter. He’ll accomplish this by demonstrating 3 technologies that provide these capabilities today, and which will move onto CXL when it’s available. Bernie will show memory sharing in a Composable Datacenter Infrastructure (CDI) environment; he will show Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory being used by heterogeneous processors; and he will show how memory orchestration will work with Linux, OpenStack, OpenShift Infrastructure (LOKI).
