MicroNetwork-Based Coherency: Extending a Processor's Coherency Domain Over A Standard Network

3 Leaf Systems' CEO, Bob Quinn, to Present at SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference & Expo

As network switch latencies fall and the architecture for processor coherency migrates from a frontside bus to a coherent network, technology is driving towards the next generation of distributed processing, which extends a microprocessor’s coherent interconnect onto a standard network, enabling efficient, high performance inter-processor communication for x86 systems over standard commodity switches. New MicroNetwork interconnect technologies are emerging, connecting Coherent HyperTransport over either Infiniband or Ethernet. These chips can support dual Coherent HyperTransport links and dual connections to either Infiniband or Ethernet. This innovative technology can enable dynamic, high performance distributed processing using shared memory, delivering unprecedented scalability and flexibility on commodity systems. This presentation will cover the technical and business trends that are driving processor advancements and enabling truly dynamic computing within the data center.
