I know Facebook is exploring PCIe inside the rack...and Intel is gearing up to ship silicon photonics for the same app. This will be an interesting space over the next year or two.

Based on the number of FPGA vendors that are showing PCIe Brigding as a key target application it would seem that PCIe will definitiely be an emerging interconnect. Note that an FPGA doing this role makes it easy to 'switch' between PCIe, Ethernet and Infiniband all in a single device. Gues thats what the FPGA guys are looking at...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
