NEC- OpenStack as a Resource-disaggregated Platform Controller

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Resource-disaggregated platform can realize IO resource (device) nodes separation from compute nodes at some distance and dynamic reconfiguration of their connectivity. In this talk, we first introduce ExpEther technology which achieves resource-disaggregated architecture.
Resource management using OpenStack Ironic is a key component for reconfiguring logical connectivity between compute nodes and target resources (NIC, SSD, GPGPU, etc.). 
Finally, PostgreSQL acceleration on GPGPU (called "PG-Strom") is presented as a use-case of reconfiguration of resource-disaggregated platform.
