The Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation would like to introduce a new event to the list of OCP events--OCP Technology Day. An OCP Technology day will focus on enabling software solutions on OCP Hardware.
Registration is now open for the first OCP Technology Day. This event will take place from 10am to 6pm on Tuesday, 30 August 2016 at Facebook in Menlo Park, California. Speakers from Facebook, Canonical and Red Hat will focus on deploying and running scale-out software such as Openstack, GlusterFS, Metal-as-a-Service and others.
Join us and learn how you and your organization can optimize your infrastructures and minimize cost by taking advantage of open software running on open hardware. Special speakers from Google and Microsoft will also speak about unique challenges surrounding running servers and storage at massive scales.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED - WE ARE SOLD OUT - NO DAY OF REGISTRATION WILL BE ALLOWED.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Limited seating is available. We will maintain a waitlist for this event.
By registering for and attending this event you agree that by providing feedback during this event, whether in written or oral form, you (and your organization if you are attending on behalf of an organization) grant OCP and its members the irrevocable rights to use the feedback for any purpose without further obligation to you.

|9:00am - 10:00am||Registration|
|10:00am - 10:30am||Welcome||Amber Graner, Operations Director and Community Manager, OCP Foundation|
|10:30am - 11:30am||Facebook Presentation||
Title: Gluster; Scale out storage
Facebook operates one of the largest Gluster environments in the world, and the talk will focus on challenges, approaches and lessons learned from using it under production workloads.
|11:30am - 12:30pm||Microsoft Presentation||
Title: Open CloudServer vNext – Architecture of the next platform system including compute and storage
Abstract: Abstract: Microsoft Azure's Cloud Server Infrastructure team has been standardizing its server designs for years now with its first contributions of the Open CloudServer to Open Compute Project over two years ago. Going forward Microsoft is re-vamping it's Open CloudServer vNext architecture with a system that is more modular, flexible and lower cost than before. Focused on EIA 19" rack deployments, OCS vNext has been designed to better meet the widely varying needs of the OCP community. OCS vNext will be contributed early in the design cycle, long before completion allowing the OCP community opportunity to build upon and work plans for delivery. In this session, you'll be provided an overview of the system and features along with the plan for rolling out to the OCP community.
|12:30pm - 2:00pm||LUNCH|
|2:00pm - 3:00pm||Red Hat Presentation||
Title: (Em)Powering Open Hardware with Open Source Software
Presenters: Thomas Cameron, James Labocki, Gregory Jones
Abstract: In this presentation, Red Hat will talk about the software and hardware communities and our vision that drives the enterprise datacenter. Red Hat will explore Open Source software and hardware for enterprise compute - OpenStack, ManageIQ.org, Ceph.org, Gluster.org, and Ansible. In addition, we will go into detail how our hardware certification fits in this enterprise.
|3:00pm - 4:00pm||Canonical Presentation||
Title:Embracing Big Software and Apps on OCP Hardware to Reduce Costs and Accelerate Innovation
Presenter:Christian Reis, Product Manager, David Duffey, Director of Technical Partnerships, and Luke Williams, Open Networking Technical Partner Manager
Abstract:Canonical will be presenting how to automate the deployment and management of datacenter servers, storage, and networking using Open Source that enables choice. This includes being able to select your preferred cloud platform like OpenStack, big data solution, SDN, VNFs, network control software (FBOSS, Quagga, etc.), and even the operating system on OCP servers and app-enabled OCP networking gear.
|4:00pm - 5:00pm||Google Presentation||Title: Disks for Data Center
Presenter: Lawrence Ying
Abstract: Disks form the central element of Cloud-based storage, whose demand far outpaces the considerable rate
