Modern computer systems have been for long designed as monolithic blocks built around the boundaries of the motherboard. This talk looks at novel architectures for low-power and high-utilization disaggregated Cloud datacenters that break those boundaries. Andrea Reale will give an overview of the hardware and software enabling the dynamic creation of fit-for-purpose computing environments from a pool of disaggregated resources. He will focus on the open source blocks needed to build a disaggregate Cloud, including the Linux kernel, Qemu+KVM, Openstack and JanusDB. He will present how IBM Research is building a proof-of-concept disaggregated Cloud by exploiting and extending these opensource components. A tiny-scale live demo of the prototype will be brought on stage, demonstrating how remote disaggregated memory can be allocated and used transparently from application binaries.
