Abstract

See full text

An embodiment of a system and method disaggregate I/O resources from a server's compute resources, such as CPU and memory, by moving the server's local I/O devices to a remote location apart from the server's compute resources. An embodiment uses optical technology to accomplish the fast communication speeds needed between the compute resources and the remotely located I/O resources. Specifically, an embodiment uses fiber-optic cables and electrical-to-optical conversion to facilitate communication between the compute resources and the I/O resources. The compute resources and the remotely located I/O resources can be designed differently to allow conductive liquid cooling for the compute resources and air cooling for the I/O resources.
