Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) was first initiated by industry leaders Alibaba, Cisco, Dell EMC, Facebook, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Intel Corporation and Microsoft in March of 2019.

The goal for the organization was to form an open industry standard group for the development of technical specifications that facilitate breakthrough performance for emerging usage models. The intent of the CXL Consortium is to support an open ecosystem for data center accelerators and other high-speed enhancements.

Officially incorporated with an expanded board of directors in September of this year, the CXL Consortium has made rapid progress with the delivery of its CXL 1.1 specification, a high-speed interconnect that enables efficient performance between the CPU and platform enhancements and workload accelerators.

On Thursday, December 12, from 8AM-9AM PT/11AM-12PM ET, join us for a highly informative webinar about the CXL Consortium and its groundbreaking technology. The webinar will be led by:

  • Glenn Ward, CXL Consortium’s MWG Co-Chair and Chief of Staff, Cloud Server Infrastructure for Microsoft
  • Debendra Das Sharma, Intel Fellow at Intel Corporation
  • Kurtis Bowman, CXL Consortium Board Member and Director, Server Architecture and Technologies at Dell EMC

Topics covered include:

  • The current industry landscape
  • Features and benefits of CXL
  • CXL use cases

You will also learn how the CXL Consortium operates and how to get involved. Our Working Groups are quickly ramping up their efforts and now is the best time to join!

The webinar includes an audience-led Q&A. All attendees are encouraged to bring questions for the Q&A portion of the webinar.
