OCP Webinar: Enabling Software Defined Memory (SDM) Real World Use Cases with CXL

Wednesday, May 18, 2022
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PT

Still time to join us for a FREE webinar where you will learn about the latest server memory innovations (Software Defined Memory) supporting use cases such as AI and ML enabled by CXL from OCP members SamsungMeta and Intel, along with analyst firm Omdia

During the webinar, you'll learn:

  • An understanding of current memory limitations and how next-generation SDM solutions can overcome those concerns
  • How the merging of software and memory innovations allow architects to rethink how memory is used
  • Understanding of the OCP SDM group’s progress on use case investigations
  • The state of CXL through a demonstration walkthrough for memory expansion
  • What the OCP SDM group’s planned role and roadmap is in furthering and emerging memory technology usage
