Tech-Giants Get Together To Launch New Interface Standards


10/14/2016


In today’s data driven world, data-centers can “no longer rely” on one single company.



IBM Corporation along with Google and seven other tech-giants have come together for launching an “open specification” capable of boosting the performance of data-centre server by “ten times”, in an attempt to “take on Intel Corp”.
 
The “new standard”, thus established, has been named as the OpenCAPI, meaning the “Open Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface”. The OpenCAPI is “an open forum” platform that will deliver “a high bandwidth, low latency open interface design specification”. It will serve in cooperation between cloud operations and corporates so as to accelerate the pace of “big data, machine learning, analytics and other emerging workloads”.
 
The tech-giants’ association has plans of launching the OpenCAPI by the year-end, while a statement revealed that in the latter half of 2017, “servers and related products” as per the new standard will be made available to the public.
 
Intel is the “largest chipmaker” of the world, which protects its “server technologies” and is known for the same. The said chip-making leader, however, “has chosen” to not involve itself in the new tech-group. In fact, its past patterns have also been the same whereby the company did not become a part of “prominent open standards technology groups such as CCIX and Gen-Z”.
 
IBM Power’s General Manager, Doug Balog, informed Reuters:
“As artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics become the price of doing business in today's digital era, huge volumes of data are now the norm”.
“It's clear that today's datacenters can no longer rely on one company alone to drive innovation”.
 
As per Reuters’, information the other members of the “OpenCAPI consortium” are:
“Advanced Micro Devices Inc, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co, Mellanox Technologies Ltd, Micron Technology Inc, NVIDIA Corp and Xilinx Inc”.
