OCP Summit Track News: Tracks 11-14: Servers, HPC & Storage

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 · Posted by at 1:00 AM

Hello Summit Attendees!!
We are winding down to the week before Summit. Our Summit Engineering Workshop Tracks continue to grow. They are jam packed with content and ideas ripe for collaboration. Please plan your Summit experience with the following tracks in mind....
Our Server Community is one of our largest communities with lots of subgroups and activities. This is apparent in the topics of these 3 tracks. 

Track 11: Servers

Track 11 will focus on current activity in our Server group - from current and emerging standards to expanding life cycles of servers, you will hear from many experts in the area of open server design. Another feature of the Server Project Community is the fantastic team work that is going on around NIC Cards design and interoperability. What a great way to see what the subgroups are working on and how to get involved.

Track 12: New Servers & GPU

Track 12 bring the future of open design. In Deember, Microsoft opened up its Project Olympus design to OCP with over 15 contributions that span most of our project communities. This track focuses on some of those contributions but also other specs that have been in the works from Facebook. These specs are now bearing fruit with products like Tioga Pass, Big Basin, Yosemite and Twin Lakes. You will hear from suppliers and Facebook about what's new in the world of servers and GPUs.

Track 13: HPC High Performance Computing

Our HPC Project Community has recently undergone a major change. With new leadership and a revamped charter, this group is getting ready for prime time. We start this track with a joint collaboration session with the Rack & Power Team. There is a lot of good work going in the Rack & Power community that directly impacts the HPC community so OCP wanted to give these 2 groups an opportunity to partner. We will discuss PCIe Gen4, OpenCAPI, Gen-Z and other topics relevant to the HPC applications.
Our Storage Community is doing so much within the OCP Community .THere are several joint developments underway!

Track 14: Storage

Between Facebook's contribution of Bryce Canyon specs to OCP, Health Chain Management API and the Hybrid SMR initiatives, there is so much going on in the Storage group. Intel, Microsoft and Rackspace will discuss their own solutions for open storage, while SK Telecom will talk about storage in their infrastructure. Companies like Google, Seagate and WDC will explore the Hybrid SMR initiative in detail. So much to hear about and so much to learn.
