Top 5 reasons to meet with Astera Labs at Intel® Innovation

Partnering with Intel and Supermicro, Astera Labs will demonstrate CXL memory expansion using our industry-leading Leo Smart Memory Controllers running real-world workloads and compare performance benchmarks for direct attach memory vs. CXL attach memory implementation for large in-memory applications. This demonstration will also highlight how our Aries Smart Retimers enable longer PCIe (PCI Express) 5.0 and CXL 1.1. signal reach to implement complex topologies. Both Leo and Aries product lines are in advanced sampling stage and ready for deployment in Cloud servers.

Unlocking Cloud Server Performance with CXL

The increasing volume of data and complexity of models requires advancements in cloud server architecture to remove memory bottlenecks and unlock the performance for compute-intensive workloads, such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Leo Memory Connectivity Platform for CXL 1.1 and 2.0 eliminates the memory bottlenecks inherent in today’s architectures and enables new heterogeneous infrastructure to increase performance and reduce costs for cloud-scale deployment.

Connectivity Is Key to Harnessing the Data Reshaping Our World

As our appetite for creating and consuming massive amounts of data continues to grow, so too will our need for increased cloud capacity to store and analyze this data. Additionally, the server connectivity backbone for data center infrastructure needs to evolve as complex AI and ML workloads become mainstream in the cloud.

Taurus Smart Cable Modules™: An Active + Smart Approach to 200/400/800GbE

Today’s data center networks are primarily serviced by 25G/lane Ethernet technology; however, these networks are quickly moving to 50G and 100G/lane to allow hyperscalers to add additional servers and switches to their Clos Network topologies and support data-intensive workloads such as AI and Machine Learning. This rapid growth in Ethernet port speed is causing a new set of challenges for design complexity and serviceability of hyperscale architectures.
