In recent HIPEAC Newsletter article IBM Research – Ireland scientist Andrea Reale, principal investigator on EU funded dReDBox “Disaggregated Data Center in a Box” says “system features an intelligent orchestration platform that can build on-demand computing platforms that precisely match the resource requirements of any application by connecting and allocating bricks on the fly.” Link: […]

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 […]

The dRedBox project is covered in the recent article “How server disaggregation could make cloud data centers more efficient” in NetworkWorld: “Workloads deployed to data centers often have a big disproportionality in the way they use resources. There are some workloads that consume lots of CPU but don’t need much memory, and on the other […]

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 […]

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
