Invited Keynote

Power delivery challenges in a data center

Mr. Gregory Sizikov

Senior Engineering Manager at Google llc. in Sunnyvale, California

Abstract

The power consumption of world wide data centers has been growing exponentially for the past 15 years. Robust power delivery network needs to be co-designed with voltage regulating devices, to ensure proper operation of high-performance microprocessors (xPUs, FPGA, ASIC etc.). In this talk we will talk about power delivery and thermal challenges of high performing compute devices that run cloud services in the data centers. We will explore the risks and opportunities in this area and share our considerations in practical designs.

  Gregory Sizikov is a Senior Engineering Manager at Google llc. in Sunnyvale, California. He is responsible for Google Cloud technical infrastructure Power Integrity development and Compliance Engineering. Prior to Google, Gregory worked at Intel in microprocessors development. He holds a MSC degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion, Israel. Gregory is also serving on the board of directors of Band of Parents - childhood cancer charity focused on helping kids with Neuroblastoma.
