Astera Labs, the global leader in semiconductor-based connectivity solutions for AI infrastructure, today announced that its Leo Memory Connectivity Platform enables data center servers with unprecedented performance for memory intensive workloads. Leo is the industry’s first Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) memory controller that increases total server memory bandwidth by 50% while also decreasing latency by 25% when integrated with the forthcoming 5th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor. Through new hardware-based interleaving of CXL-attached and CPU native memory, Astera Labs and Intel eliminate any application-level software changes to augment server memory resources via CXL. Existing applications can effortlessly “plug-and-play” to take advantage of the highest possible memory bandwidth and capacity in the system.
“The growth of computing cores and performance has historically outpaced memory throughput advancements, resulting in degraded server performance efficiency over time,” said Sanjay Gajendra, COO of Astera Labs. “This performance scaling challenge has led to the infamous ‘memory wall,’ and thanks to our collaboration with Intel, our Leo Memory Connectivity Platform breaks through this barrier by delivering on the promise of PCIe 5.0 and CXL memory.”
Data center infrastructure scaling limitations due to the memory wall are none more evident than in AI servers where memory bandwidth and capacity bottlenecks result in inefficient processor utilization. The CXL innovations delivered by Astera Labs and Intel directly address these bottlenecks and lay the foundation for cloud, hybrid-cloud and enterprise data centers to maximize accelerated computing performance.
Extending leadership of PCIe® 5.0 and CXL 2.0 solutions
Astera Labs has a history of delivering industry-first solutions that are critical to advancing the PCIe and CXL ecosystems. In addition to memory performance advancements with Leo, Astera Labs is also driving interoperability leadership with its Aries PCIe 5.0 / CXL 2.0 Smart Retimers on state-of-the-art Intel server platforms. As the most widely deployed and proven PCIe/CXL retimer family in the industry, Aries features a low-latency CXL mode that complements Leo to form the most robust CXL memory connectivity solution.
“We applaud Astera Labs for their contributions to the CXL ecosystem and are delighted to extend our ongoing collaboration. We believe Memory Connectivity Platforms containing innovations from companies like Astera Labs will help deliver enhanced performance on next generation Intel Xeon processors, and accelerate a myriad of memory intensive workloads,” said Zane Ball, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Data Center Platform Engineering and Architecture Group, Intel.
Visit Astera Labs at Intel Innovation!
Astera Labs will showcase Leo and Aries together with Intel’s latest Xeon® Scalable processors at Booth #210, September 19-20 at the San Jose Convention Center. Talk to Astera Labs’ experts to learn more about industry benchmarks and how to optimize PCIe/CXL memory solutions in data center architectures to deliver optimized performance for applications ranging from AI, real time analytics, genomics and modeling.

SoftIron, the worldwide leader in private cloud infrastructure, today announced it has been named as a Sample Vendor for the “Gartner Hype Cycle for Edge Computing, 2023.”
Gartner Hype Cycle provides a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals. The five phases of a Hype cycle are innovation trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment and the Plateau of Productivity.
SoftIron is recognized in the Gartner report as a Sample Vendor for Edge Storage and the report defines the technology as those that enable the creation, analysis, processing and delivery of data services at, or close to, the location where the data is generated or consumed, rather than in a centralized environment. Gartner predicts that infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders are beginning the process of laying out a strategy for how they intend to manage data at the edge. Although I&O leaders embrace infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud providers, they also realize that a significant part of the infrastructure services will remain on-premises, and would require edge storage data services.
Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals. The latest Gartner Hype Cycle analyzed 31 emerging technologies and included a Priority Matrix that provides perspective on the edge computing innovations that will have a bigger impact, and those that might take longer to fully mature.
“We are excited to be recognized in the 2023 Garter Hype Cycle for Edge Computing,” said Jason Van der Schyff, COO at SoftIron. “We believe at SoftIron to be well positioned to help our customers address and take advantage of the latest trends and developments in Edge Computing as reported in Gartner’s Hype Cycle.”
