In this webinar, you will hear the latest on memory disaggregation research trends and applications from researchers in industry and academia.  The concept of memory disaggregation has been around for a while now. However, it only recently took-off generating wide interest.  A combination between more integrated support in CPUs (e.g., OpenCAPI coherent attachment and IBM’s POWER10 with Memory Inception) and new applications requiring unprecedented amounts of memory have made this technology an appealing solution. Applications of memory disaggregation are spanning from big-data and in memory-databases, to a tool for optimizing utilization and minimizing costs in a data-center.

Swiss Light Source Synchrotron (Paul Scherrer Institut) in Switzerland and OpenCAPI Technology Advances Macromolecular Crystallography Research



Huge data acquisition with real time processing now reality in Switzerland thanks to parallel FPGA’s using OpenCAPI links

To advance macromolecular crystallography research, PSI is migrating to the next generation macromolecular crystallography detector.  This demands 5X in data processing compared to prior generations of detectors which present data management systems cannot handle the load and becomes a bottleneck.  To meet this demand, PSI migrated to parallel FPGA’s using OpenCAPI links that ungate image data fed to the processors.
