Enabling Mass Adoption of CXL-Attached Memory with Rambus | Utilizing Tech 4×19

Moving memory and other resources off the system bus to CXL is exciting, but how do we ensure that these systems will be reliable, available, and serviceable? This episode of Utilizing Tech features Mark Orthodoxou, VP of Strategic Marketing for Datacenter Products at Rambus discussing with Stephen Foskett and Craig Rodgers the technology and standards required for mass adoption of CXL-attached memory. Rambus brings decades of experience and a breadth of technology to the deployment of memory in high-performance and highly-available systems. As a CXL Consortium member, Rambus is bringing this experience to CXL, enabling the technology across the ecosystem. Memory expansion with CXL is being deployed today, and memory pooling over CXL fabrics is coming, but it is disaggregation and rack-scale architecture that will ultimately be the result of the adoption of CXL.
