Summit - 2012

The third Open Compute Summit will be our first two-day event, and it will feature a stellar lineup of speakers, announcements, demonstrations, booths, and networking opportunities. And, perhaps more importantly, we're going to be devoting even more time at the summit to working together on rapidly progressing projects like Open Rack, Open Hardware Management, Virtual IO, Storage, and Motherboards. Looking forward to seeing you all in San Antonio! The summit is sponsored by these organizations. If you missed the summit, watch a recap from the 2012 summit below.

Open Compute Projects Technical Workshops

Open Rack
Mechanical design and modular power distribution slides
Motherboards
Settings new standards in efficiency and performance slides
Storage
New Hardware and building for the 100 year standard slides
Virtual IO
Pushing the limits of connectivity, software and hardware modularity slides, meeting notes, going forward
Systems Management
Defining open systems management for the enterprise
Datacenter Design
New initiatives; building for different geographies slides

Additionally, running in parallel to the technical workshops there will be a series of Open Sessions ---these will be a combination of informative sessions educating people on how the OCP has enabled the ecosystem to both adopt and contribute to the technology stack and how to think about web-scale technology design at scale.
