2021 OCP Global Summit Highlight Video


OCP TECH TALK SERIES: Data Center Facility

  • May 19, 2022: Virtual: 8:30-11:30amPT. Click here for more information and to register.

  • The Tech Talk session hosted by the Data Center Facility project will focus on sustainability topics related to the facilities infrastructure. Much progress has been made in reducing carbon emissions associated with the design/operation, power sourcing, and indirect carbon impact for data centers, but alternative solutions continue to emerge and there is work to do in baselining and tracking improvements. The DCF session will include presentations on alternative fuels, innovative technologies, and sustainability metrics and assessments. Check out the latest updates from the OCP Data Center Facility Project.


OCP TECH TALK SERIES: Cooling Environments

  • Cooling Environments Session 1: May 24, 2022: Virtual: 8:30-11:30amPT 

  • Cooling Environments Session 2: May 25, 2022: Virtual: 8:30-11:30amPT

  • Designed to address the increasing demand for data center cooling innovations, the scope of the Cooling Environments charter is to consolidate five existing Advanced Cooling Solutions (ACS) and Advanced Cooling Facilities (ACF) sub projects — ACS Immersion, ACS Cold Plate, ACS Door Heat Exchanger and Advanced Cooling Facilities and Heat Re-use. The motivation for the formation of this project stems from the increased need for synergies between data center facilities (DCF), ACS and ACF activities within OCP.

    High performance computing has used liquid cooling for many years. These solutions have proven to be cost effective and efficient at heat extraction. With the growth of 5G, IoT, VR, CDN, and latency sensitive applications, data centers are being constructed in regions of the globe where cooling becomes quite a challenge. Increased power density also introduces cooling challenges. In these cases liquid cooling, and specifically warm water cooling, becomes an effective alternative for heat extraction. Hear the latest updates from the OCP Cooling Environments Project


OCP TECH TALK SERIES: Hardware Management

  • May 26, 2022: Virtual: 8:30-11:30amPT

  • Click here for more information and to register.

  • The hardware management project provides a common foundation for manageability to a number of OCP projects including servers, storage, data center facility, rack, and power. The hardware management project’s scope and charter have further expanded. The hardware management project now has four sub-projects: OpenRMC, Hardware Management Module, Hardware Fault Management, and Device Manager. This tech talk will cover presentations of topics within the scope of hardware management and its sub-projects. Read more updates about the OCP Hardware Management Project.

HiPChips Chiplet Workshop @ ISCA Conference


OCP Educational Webinar: Powering the Metaverse

  • June 28, 2022: Virtual (8 - 9 AM PT)
  • The Metaverse represents a very large jump in computational power, networking, and storage capacity. This is complemented by low latency computational capacity to be located near the end user. This will push the limits on data center infrastructure from a compute density, power efficiency and cooling requirements. To deliver the metaverse we will need IT ecosystems composed of many geographically distributed workloads, designed to process very large data sets in parallel, be managed at scale and over a wide geography. Open hardware and software will be a critical element of achieving these advances including new high performance server designs, standardized modules that can be reused between IT equipment, disaggregated storage and large pools of memory that can be dynamically shared among many CPUs. All elements that are being actively worked across the OCP and FTI projects.

    Presenters:

  • Cliff Grossner (Moderator): OCP
  • Kuba Stolarski (Analyst): IDC
  • Alan Chang (Panelist): Inspur
  • John Miranda (Panelist): Intel

OCP Educational Webinar: Laying the Foundations for an Open Edge

  • July 14, 2022: Virtual (8 - 9 AM PT)
  • Open hardware has played an important role in driving innovation and allowing a multi-vendor ecosystem in centralized data centers. As the cloud computing model spreads to the edge, the same open and disaggregated model will play an important role in edge computing.

    Presenters:

  • Cliff Grossner (Moderator): OCP
  • Roy Chau (Analyst): AvidThink
  • Jon Mechling (Panelist): HPE
  • Philippe Michelete (Panelist): Kaloom

OCP China Day

  • August 10th in Beijing: in-person and online
  • The agenda will focus on the future trends of open compute technology development, key technology/product/application progress of Community members in China, as well as parallel sub-forums on AI, edge computing, networking, data center infrastructure (liquid cooling), open software, open computing industry ecology and other important relevant topics.
  • For more information, please contact dirkv@opencompute.org

25th European Institute of Purchasing Management (EIPM) Annual Purchasing Conference

  • October 6, 2022: Virtual

  • This year's EIPM conference is about diversity and leadership. We bring together people from different parts of the worlds to share views on their leadership agenda and what helps them to be successful. Starting in Japan, we intend to finish the day either in Africa or South America.

    We also intend to share inspiring experience. We will wonder how start-ups who sell electronic and connected products manage their supply chains; how open-source ecosystems create technologies that end up in our supply chains.

    Our 2022 conference will be a learning journey from East to West, a journey of exchanges across continents and generations, a global discussion about what procurement leadership is. Register here.
