The CXL Consortium is an open industry standard group responsible for technical specifications and standards. This episode of Utilizing CXL brings Siamak Tavallaei, CXL president, to discuss the emergence of Compute Express Link. The goal of CXL is to disaggregate servers, moving memory away from the CPU and enabling users to compose servers more flexibly. We have already disaggregated storage from compute, and breaking the fixed memory interconnect will have a similar effect. But we also need the system to be manageable, with software to configure and orchestrate resources. The CXL Consortium is facilitating the development of all this in association with nearly every company in the IT industry.
