25Gbps is where the transducers are landing for simple, single fiber capacity.  10Gbps underutilizes the hardware.  40Gbps does not look feasible without 2 or more fibers, it is an implausible step up for transducers any time soon.

In a data center with millions of connectors it makes sense to aim at the optimal feasible point which seems to be 25G for the next few years.  It is a good idea to get all the parties interested in buying and selling at this performance point to agree on compatibility.

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.
