The Foundation would like to express a sincere thank you to all those members of the OCP Incubation Committee (IC) who were appointed by the Foundation Board of Directors and served on the IC from it’s inception. These early pioneers and supporters of the project have built the groundwork for how we review and adopt all the amazing contributions our community gives us.
Our thanks and appreciation also go to all those who participated by running for an IC seat. This election is another important milestone in the transition to a peer elected leadership format which is a core tenant of the Open Compute Project.
There were seven OCP IC seats open for this round of elections. The Chair and Vice-Chair positions remain appointed by the board. Only 2 of the 7 seats required a vote for this election: Hardware Management and Networking. The results of those votes were as follows:
Chilung Wang will replace Stephen Rousset
Kushagra Vaid will replace Lakshmi Mandyam
Please join the Foundation in welcoming the 2014-2015 OCP IC Members.
- Andy Bechtolsheim - Chair
- Amir Michael - Vice Chair
- Aaron Sullivan - Compliance and Interoperability
- William (Bill) Carter - Data Center
- Chilung Wang - Hardware Management
- Kushagra Vaid - Networking
- Matt Corddry - Open Rack
- Conor Malone - Storage
- Bob Ogrey - Server
The IC meets every six weeks to review and vote on new contributions to the Foundation. It helps shape new projects by working closely with the OCP Project Chairs to provide guidance and feedback on all hardware and software contributions to the Foundation.
