Samsung and Red Hat Collaborate to Validate CXL Memory for Enhanced Data Center Utilization

Samsung has verified the use of Compute Express Link (CXL) memory operation in a real user environment with Red Hat, an open-source software provider. CXL is a unified interface standard that connects various processors and memory devices through a PCIe interface at lower latency and higher bandwidth. This allows data centers to improve speed, latency, and scalability at low cost. Samsung optimized its CXL memory for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.3 and verified memory recognition, read and write operations in Red Hat’s KVM and Podman environments. The company plans to offer customer support for CXL memory through its Samsung Memory Research Center, formed in 2022. The CXL market is currently valued at approximately $14 million but is expected to grow to $16 billion in 2028, according to market research firm Yole Group.
