Samsung, Red Hat collaborate on next-generation memory technology

Samsung has announced the verification of Compute Express Link memory in a real user environment, in partnership with Red Hat.

Samsung has optimized its CXL memory for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 9.3 and conducted tests in memory recognition, read, and write operations within Red Hat’s KVM and Podman environments. This allows data center clients to integrate Samsung’s CXL memory into their hardware.

CXL, a unified interface standard, addresses limitations in speed, latency, and expandability in current systems by connecting processors like CPUs, GPUs, and memory devices through a PCIe interface. The verification responds to the demand for systems with more memory bandwidth and capacity, needed for fields such as generative AI, autonomous driving, and in-memory databases (IMDBs), says Samsung.

The Samsung – Red Hat partnership, which began with a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in May 2022, focuses on memory development. The partnership covers storage and memory products, including NVMe SSDs, CXL Memory, computational memory/storage, and fabrics.
