Memory expansion is the first application for CXL, and memory pooling is coming next, but this technology will eventually support storage, Ethernet, and more. This episode of Utilizing CXL brings Ronen Hyatt, CEO of UnifabriX, to discuss memory and more over CXL with Nathan Bennett and Stephen Foskett. UnifabriX demonstrated high-performance compute benchmarks using their Smart Memory Node at Super Computing 22 and claims to be the first to show a CXL 3.0 fabric. But the company is also promising NVMe storage and Ethernet connectivity over the CXL fabric. This enables each server to have the right type and capacity of connectivity, from basic Ethernet to DPU, with dynamic reconfiguration. The fabric can also contain an NVMe storage target that combines DRAM and flash and can be dynamically allocated.
