Why 25G is the Best Choice for Data Centers

  1. 1. Why 25GE is the Best Choice for Data Centers Gilles Garcia – Xilinx Director Wired Communication Business Santa Clara, CA USA April 2015 1
  2. 2. Outline - update  Data center drivers  Why 25GE  The need for 25GE  Applications  25GE timeline  25GE ecosystem  Summary 2Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  3. 3. The Need for More Speed  Unrelenting IP traffic growth  Driven by mobile data and video  WEB 2.0 data handled gigantic Source: http://www.ieee802.org/3/ad_hoc/bwa/BWA_Report.pdf 3Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  4. 4. Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 4 Service Providers Servers Data Centers Core Networking Doubling ≈18 mos Server I/O Doubling ≈24 mos - Let’s not forget OPEX and CAPEX of WEB 2.0 companies - Increase server rack capacity and bandwidth Multiple Drivers Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  5. 5. 25Gb/s Ethernet Connectivity  Enables similar topology as 40Gb/s & 10Gb/s • Single 25Gb/s SFP28 port implementation or quad 25Gb/s QSFP28 breakout implementation possible • Maximizes ports and bandwidth in ToR switch faceplate • Dense rack server • Within rack, less than 3m typical length Server Server TOR Switch ASIC 48-port 25G 4-port 100G Server Server Server Server Break-outcable 25G serdes IEEE 802.3 Call For Interest – 25Gb/s Ethernet over a single lane for server interconnect – July 2014 San Diego a) 2.5X bandwidth compare to 10G …and still through a single lane b) One lane vs 4 for 40GE (4x10G) c) Migration path from 10G to 25GE Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  6. 6. Page 6 Economical Considerations  Data centers traffic is increasing exponentially, requiring higher bandwidth • Running out of gas with 10GE  Upgrading directly to 40G and 100G is cost prohibitive • Optical modules ‘cost prohibitive’ for WEB 2.0 companies  25G leverages existing (10G, single port/lane) infrastructure  2.5x performance per lane of twinax copper wiring between the server and the switch • Reduces data center CapEx by providing a migration path from 10G to 25G links  Provides easy migration path to 50GE (2x25GE) & 100G (4x25G) • Special server • Uplinks • Another 2x performance improvement Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  7. 7.  25G Consortium formed July 2014 • Interoperability Ethernet specification for speeds between a server NIC and top of rack switch • Accelerate rollout of products in next 12 to 18 months • Royalty free • Xilinx is a member • Founding members: – Arista, Broadcom, Google, Mellanox and Microsoft  IEEE 25Gb/s Ethernet Study Group progressing Page 7 25G Ethernet Standards Landscape Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  8. 8.  Nov 2014: • 25GE Study Group => Task Force  Feb 2015: • IEEE 802.3by new 25G Ethernet draft standard  2016: expect standards to be finalized – Short timeline because of reuse from 10GE, 100GE – YE 2016 IEEE 25GE Standardization Timeline Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final
  9. 9. FPGAs for 25GE  The official 25GE standard won’t be published until YE 2016  Robust pre-standard market today, based on FPGA implementations  Broadcom Switch sampling with 128 25GE ports  FPGA designs can track changes in the standards as it progresses  The following figures shows a typical 1st generation implementation 9 MAC/PCS Server Copper Cable 25GE Santa Clara, CA USA, April 2015 Forum 1A_Garcia_Final

  14. 14. Summary  Data center bandwidth explosion driving the 25GE  25GE promoted by large industry players (DC and OEMs)  25GE demand aligned with technology single lane transceiver  25GE ecosystem is ready for prime time • Xilinx 25GE pre-standard MAC IP available • Ixia 25GE tester announced at OFC 2015 • QSFP28 copper cables available • 25GE switch silicon sampling  25GE standards (25GE consortium & IEEE) ratification: 2016-17  50GE is around the corner …. 50GE MAC/PCS IP available from Xilinx Santa Clara, CA USA April 2015 14
