KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2021 Virtual
May 4 @ 10:00 am - May 7 @ 5:00 pm
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference gathers adopters and technologists from leading open source and cloud native communities virtually from May 4 – 7, 2021.
Carlos Eduardo de Paula, RISC-V Ambassador and Daniel Magnum Senior Software Engineer, Upbound will present RISC-V: The Lowest Layer of the Cloud-Native Landscape
The cloud-native ecosystem has evolved over the past decade to include countless open source projects and solutions, allowing organizations to piece together software platforms that are highly tailored to their specific requirements. However, as Moore’s Law and Dennard Scaling have plateaued, performance gains and energy efficiency must be found in custom hardware in the form of domain specific accelerators. For software to target these heterogeneous architectures, a standard ISA with a common core is required. In this session we will explore how RISC-V will open up the lowest layer of the cloud-native landscape, enabling system builders to innovate across the whole stack, while still leveraging common technology, such as Kubernetes.
