 Virtual presentations

Pre-recorded presentations will be released on YouTube at 4:40 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2.

“CXL is fast becoming the open industry standard to interconnect processors, memory, and accelerator technology, delivering the speed and performance that will transform computing as we know it,” said Siamak Tavallaei, president, CXL Consortium. “During Flash Memory Summit industry thought leaders and innovators are coming together to educate the industry about CXL to accelerate adoption for this game-changing technology.”

“We are honored to host the first CXL forum at FMS,” said Charles Fan, CEO and Co-founder of MemVerge. “The convergence of this broad ecosystem of vendors marks the arrival of CXL. Aside from significantly increasing the capacity and bandwidth of memory subsystems, CXL makes possible the disaggregation and pooling of memory resources – the architecture that will answer to the needs of contemporary and next generation applications. We are right before the dawn of a revolution in data centers. The excitement is in the air!”

The “CXL: Getting Ready for Takeoff” forum will be open, live, to all attendees of the Flash Memory Summit, which will run August 2-4, 2022 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The forum is also available virtually starting at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time on August 2. Register for the virtual event here.
