This webinar features Verification IP components that are driving server, storage, and networking companies to adopt emerging standards helping deliver the cloud computing infrastructure. Compute, networking, and storage resources make up the backbone of the cloud, and design and verification teams need cost-effective solutions that scale in response to real-time demands and product requirements.

What you will learn
In the webinar you will learn more about these emerging standards and technologies and how proven VIP plays a critical role. Topics will touch on:
  • Ultra High-Speed 40/100G Ethernet—Emerging high-speed network standards that support the growing demands of network fabrics and virtualization
  • DDR4—High-performance, next-generation memory interface that offers 2x higher performance and 40% lower power consumption than DDR3
  • LRDIMM—Advanced load-reduced memory interface that provides up to 3x the server memory capacity while maintaining the same loading as previous RDIMM generations
  • 12Gb/s SAS—Enhanced protocol for connecting storage systems, designed to deliver the massive data content required by the cloud
  • NVMe—Storage protocol (Non-Volatile Memory Express) for connecting drives and controllers, unlocking the huge I/O potential of solid-state drives
