Disruptive forces are quickly changing the datacenter, and the calls for enhanced efficiency are reaching a fever pitch. PLX Technology's ExpressFabric converged fabric enables a host of new capabilities to address performance challenges in the datacenter with a more efficient design. Reduction of components and power consumption can significantly reduce TCO in existing designs, as well as lower CapEX in new deployments.
Datacenter evolution does not happen overnight. ExpressFabric initially targets small to medium-sized cloud clusters with up to 1,000 nodes and 8 racks. Easy compatibility with existing protocols such as Ethernet and Infiniband is important as the capabilities of the ubiquitous PCIe connection expand out of the box.
PLX Technology specializes in providing a complete solution. They are a firm believer in the adage "silicon without software is just sand." They focus on providing software development kits, hardware design kits, operating system ports, and firmware solutions for their customers. PLX's long history and numerous partners place them in a good position to steer ExpressFabric into the datacenter.
In the longer term, leveraging PCIe as a converged fabric will begin the transformation of rack-level architectures into resource pooling models. SDDC and SDS movements are falling into place, and the stars are aligning with disruptive initiatives, such as Open Compute, propelling a rapid uptake of new efficient models.
The pace of innovation is quickening, and the need for more power and efficiency will only be served by refreshing new approaches to solving the problems handed down by old architectures. PLX's introduction of ExpressFabric will enable a host of new and exciting opportunities in the datacenter.
