Elastics.cloud First to Demonstrate CXL-Enabled Symmetric Multi-Host Memory Pooling and Expansion

Elastics.cloud, a Smart Interconnect technology company focused on enabling efficient and performant composable architectures, announced it is the first in the industry to demonstrate symmetric host-to-host memory pooling with Compute Express Link (CXL).

The demonstration, which will be exhibited at Intel Innovation this week, showcases two-node symmetric memory pooling and expansion. Two CXL-enabled servers are equipped with FPGA cards running Elastics.cloud IP. The servers are connected via a CXL interface over a cable. This configuration allows the first server to access not only its own direct-attached memory, but also expanded CXL-attached memory within the same server, as well as CXL-attached memory in the second server. Concurrently, the second server in the pair can access its own direct-attached memory, its own expanded CXL-attached memory, and the first server’s CXL-attached memory.

Elastics.cloud’s Tiered Memory Dashboard shows latency and memory allocation statistics for the live traffic running on the demonstration servers at all memory tiers: direct-attached memory, CXL-attached local memory, and CXL-attached remote memory.

As a contributing member of the CXL Consortium, Elastics.cloud is among 200+ member companies improving system architectures.

The demonstrated two-node symmetric memory pooling use case is just one of the multi-host configurations supported by Elastics.cloud’s currently available FPGA-based solution. In a rack-scale solution, up to eight servers can perform multi-host memory expansion and pooling using Elastics.cloud IP.  Elastics.cloud is also developing an ASIC solution for CXL-enabled systems.

“CXL has ignited a revolution in system architecture, and CXL-enabled symmetric memory pooling is a key step on the road to full composability,” said Elastics.cloud CEO George Apostol. “Our solutions are leading-edge and will provide customers greater flexibility and utilization, better performance, and reduced TCO at scale.”
