Intel Wants To Kill The Traditional Server Rack With 100Gbps Links

Story :

Intel is working to replace the traditional server rack with a more efficient architecture that separates CPU, storage, power, and networking resources into individual components that can be swapped out as needed.

Power and cooling would be shared across CPUs, rather than having separate power supplies for each server. Server, memory, network, and storage resources would all be disaggregated and shared across the rack. Incredibly fast interconnects will be needed to prevent slowdowns because disaggregating components pushes them further apart, and Intel is thus building an interconnect that's capable of 100Gbps.

"We are developing a rack-scale architecture," Lisa Graff, VP and general manager of Intel's data center marketing group, said in a briefing with reporters last week. "We're working with end users, OEMs, and ISVs to drive common standards in a reference architecture."
