2022 OCP Global Summit Theme

Empowering Open is the theme for the 2022 OCP Global Summit.  The world’s most innovative organizations - from hyperscalers to colo-facilities to enterprise to government - have realized the benefits of openly researching, developing, testing, deploying and sharing technologies through collaboration.    

The Open Compute Project (OCP) has followed the advice of the late Robert Noyce, inventor of the integrated circuit, and INTEL founder, “Don’t be encumbered by history, just go out and do something wonderful.”  This year we want to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of our Empowered Open Community that is already doing something wonderful!  Lots of things:

  • When chilled air no longer can cool, we shift to liquid
  • When electrons are too slow, we embrace light
  • When designs become inflexible, we adopt modularity
  • When data center locations matter, we adapt to the edge 
  • When we eliminate direct emissions, we go after indirect emissions

The OCP Empowered Community is also solving problems in the areas of  security, time domain, chiplets, connectivity and more. 
This year’s Summit will be three jam-packed days, and brings together the brightest engineers and business leaders who will share the technologies present in best-in-class solutions. You will hear about the challenges to match the fast-paced demand for advanced compute, storage and network performance.      

The Future Technologies Symposium will coincide with the OCP Global Summit and attendees will hear about emerging challenges and how these may be addressed, while the Engineering Workshops will cover new products, specifications and key learnings. Our Experience Center will provide an up-close and personal look at some of these emerging solutions, while the Exhibit Hall will feature the latest innovations from leading-edge companies. 

Community-Driven Hyperscale Innovation for All. 

Over the years, we have read about the innovation that comes out of the engineering departments of hyperscale companies. The Open Compute Project has fostered community-driven innovation where these engineering departments are no longer isolated or siloed.  Instead, they are solving difficult problems facing the industry through collaboration. This cooperation by the hyperscale companies is enabling the supply chain to align and accelerate the delivery of technology and products to EVERYONE!
