When it comes to Data Centres, speed and reliability are not just assets but necessities, Kandou introduces its latest innovation: the Regli PCIe Retimer. Engineered to meet the escalating demands for rapid data processing and security, the Regli PCIe Retimer emerges as a pivotal solution in the data centre landscape.
Understanding the Crucial Role of PCIe in Data Centers
PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) stands as the backbone of modern data centres. It is the standard interface that enables high-speed communication between the server’s central processing unit (CPU) and peripheral devices like storage drives, network cards, and GPUs. As data centres evolve, the need for faster, more efficient PCIe solutions becomes increasingly crucial.
Kandou’s Regli PCIe retimer is a testament to the company’s commitment to advancing data transfer technology. Operating at under 10 nanoseconds latency, Regli not only ensures rapid response times but also maintains an impressively low error rate of up to 1E-12. This combination of speed and precision is vital in data centre operations where every nanosecond counts.
Exceptional Signal Integrity
Regli’s standout feature is its exceptional signal integrity. With a 1E-12 error rate, Regli guarantees almost flawless signal compensation across PCIe networks. This level of integrity is critical in data centres, ensuring consistent, error-free data transmission even over extended distances and complex network architectures.
Rapid Response for Real-Time Processing
In a data centre environment, delay is the enemy. Regli’s sub-10 nanoseconds latency places it among the world’s fastest PCIe retimers. This speed is essential for real-time data processing, a critical component in various applications ranging from high-frequency trading to real-time analytics.
Understanding the paramount importance of security in data centres, Regli has been designed with a security-first approach. Kandou’s in-house security team has meticulously worked to ensure that all potential vulnerabilities are addressed, providing an extra layer of protection against cyber threats.

Sustainability: A Core Principle in Data Center Evolution with Regli™
As data centres continue to expand and evolve, sustainability has become a central focus, not just for environmental responsibility but also for operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Kandou’s Regli PCIe Retimer is not only a technological marvel in terms of speed and reliability; it also plays a significant role in advancing the sustainability of data centres.
Energy Efficiency: Reducing the Carbon Footprint
One of the most prominent aspects of sustainability in data centres is energy consumption. Data centres are known for their high energy usage, driven by the need to power and cool a vast array of servers and equipment. Regli’s ultra-low latency and high efficiency contribute to a reduction in the overall energy demand of data centres.
Optimised Power Consumption: Regli’s design focuses on optimized power use, crucial for reducing the operational costs and carbon footprint of data centres. By consuming less power for data transmission and processing, Regli helps in minimizing the overall energy usage of the data centre.
Heat Reduction: High-speed operations often lead to increased heat generation, requiring extensive cooling systems. Regli’s efficiency in processing and data transmission results in less heat generation, thus reducing the need for aggressive cooling solutions and further diminishing energy consumption.
Advancing Green Technology
Incorporating Regli in data centre designs is a step towards embracing green technology. By optimising data transfer processes and reducing energy usage, Regli aligns with the growing trend of eco-friendly data centre operations.
Support for Renewable Energy Sources: Reduced energy consumption makes it more feasible for data centres to operate on renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power. This shift is crucial in reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and promoting a greener, more sustainable technology infrastructure.
Long-Term Sustainability: Regli’s forward-compatible design ensures that data centres can adapt to future technological advancements without the need for frequent hardware replacements. This longevity reduces waste and the environmental impact associated with the production and disposal of tech components.
Contributing to a Sustainable Future
Kandou’s commitment to sustainability through products like Regli reflects a broader understanding of the role technology companies play in shaping a sustainable future. By prioritizing energy efficiency and environmental responsibility, Regli not only enhances the performance of data centres but also contributes to a larger goal of creating a more sustainable and responsible technology ecosystem.
Kandou’s Regli PCIe Retimer is not just a product; it’s a solution that addresses the core needs of modern data centres. By combining exceptional speed, reliability, and security, Regli is poised to set new standards in data centre technology, ensuring that businesses can meet the challenges of an increasingly data-driven world with confidence and efficiency.
