The final dRedBox project review meeting was held at IBM Research Ireland in Dublin. The review was a great success and included live demonstrations of ScaleUp of VM resources on the dissagregated server.
Dr. Mark Sugrue of Kinesense will present a keynote address on dRedBox at the Datacloud Ireland conference in Dublin on Sept 13th 2018. In today’s cloud data centres, the physical system is composed of individual server units each containing processing, memory, accelerators and storage hardware. This arrangement is wasteful. Some applications need more ram, some […]
Way back in time, back in the far 1958, the EDSAC II computer came out of the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. It was the first computer that showed us how to use smaller processors as “lego bricks” to build larger compute units. The technique was later called “bit slicing”. Fast forward to […]
dReDBox had its dedicated booth at the expo of the Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) 2018 conference that took place this year in Dresden, Germany. The innovation pursued in the project and the demonstrated artefacts attracted a lot of interest and discussion from attendees. dReDBox Booth with demo test server and final server […]
The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) is the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. dRedBox is being displayed at Booth 3239, with thanks to project partner Huber+Suhner
Through an interview with IBM Research Ireland Andrea Reale and Kostas Katrinis, Dan Robinson has covered in an IDG Connect article how the H2020 dReDBox project is spearheading innovation in datacenter disaggregation for the cloud.
Sintecs and the dRedBox project have been covered in an article on the European Commission website. We are used to thinking of a datacenter as a big room full of racks and servers that are statically interconnected to provide processing, memory, accelerators and storage resources. But what if all these different components could be simply […]
Is it time to rethink the data centre paradigm? IBM researchers think so. As part of their involvement in the EU-funded dReDBox project, they’ll be presenting their work on disaggregated data centres alongside a host of other networking innovations at the AISTECS workshop on 22 January, which takes place during the HiPEAC conference…Read more
Sintecs is happy to share the first images of the dBRICK board. The dBRICK board is a processing SBC/slice developed for the #dReDBox system. Some highlights of the dBRICK: • Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZU6EG device • 4 GiB of DDR4@2400MT of PS memory • 8*16 GBps optical lanes • 8*12 GBps electrical lanes • […]
Andrea Reale (IBM Research) has written an excellent blog article introducing the ideas behind dReDBox and the impact that memory disaggregration can have to future cloud datacenters. The blog has been further covered by Phys.org and InsideHPC. Within the article, you can also view a video (linked below) listening to IBM Research scientists talking about […]
