Infrastructure without compromise. Enabling dynamic computing to accelerate time to outcome

GigaIO’s unique memory fabric technology empowers organizations to dynamically configure their IT infrastructure per workload’s requirements, leveraging standard tools and components, to drive better performance and costs. A key feature of the FabreX technology is the ability to disaggregate system components – processors, memory, storage, networks and accelerators – and for the first time, re-aggregate them at will without a loss in performance.

Speaker: Alan Benjamin – CEO, GigaIO
Alan is one of the visionaries behind GigaIO’s innovative solution. He was most recently COO of Pulse Electronics – $800M communication components and subsystem supplier and previously CEO of Excelsus Technologies. He started his career at Hewlett-Packard in Sales Support and quickly moved into management positions in Product Management and R&D. Alan graduated from Duke University with a BSEE in Electrical Engineering and attended Harvard Business School AMP program, as well as UCSD LAMP program.

How the Open Programmable Infrastructure Project is Shaping Future Networking Framework

Abstract: The Open Programmable Infrastructure Project is a new Linux Foundation open source project focused on building software for DPU and IPU devices to enable programmable infrastructure. Boris and Kyle are both founding members of the OPI Project. Join them in this talk to learn what the OPI Project is, how it was formed, and where it is headed. They will discuss efforts in the project around provisioning, management, and APIs. They will also deep-dive into the developer platform being built to enable OPI developers.

Speakers : Kyle Mestery and Boris Glimcher (for this presentation, Kyle and Boris will be speaking on behalf of the OPI Project)
Kyle Mestery is a Senior Principal Engineer at Intel, working in the Office of the CTO on open source networking strategy. He is heavily involved in creating the InfrastructureProgrammer Development Kit (IPDK), an open source framework providing drivers and APIs for infrastructure offload and management. In the past, he has played a major role in both developing and applying many major open-source networking projects including Open vSwitch, OpenStack, OpenDaylight, and OPNFV. He was the Project Technical Lead of OpenStack Neutron and was a member of the OpenStack Technical Committee and the OPNFV board of directors. He has been a Distinguished Engineer at both Cisco and IBM and Chief Technologist of Open Source Networking at HP. He holds 19 patents, has filed over 50 additional patents, has written six publications, and has earned two Cisco Pioneer Awards.

Boris Glimcher is a Distinguished Engineer in the Infrastructure Solutions Group for Dell Technologies. His focus areas of interest is NVMe-oF, DPUs and disaggregated composable architectures. Outside of work, Boris is a Harley enthusiast, traveling the world on 2 wheels as much as he can.
