Session: Sustainability through open-source designs
How are open-source infrastructure designs affecting data centres in Singapore? What efficiency and sustainability should an enterprise expect from their data centre provider? How can enterprise companies incorporate best practices gleaned from the hyperscalers? In this brief, but impactful session, we will inform and educate by addressing these questions as well as a variety of other areas to consider as organisations look toward sustainable growth for their infrastructure in Singapore.
Speakers: Steve Helvie, OCP & Asher Ling, Princeton Digital Group

Large data center operators, including the biggest cloud service providers (SPs), have invested significant time and effort to optimize and run their data centers efficiently at scale. While some large cloud SPs keep their data center designs confidential, others—like Facebook and Microsoft—share their best practices openly through initiatives such as the Open Compute Project (OCP). OCP technologies are gaining broader adoption. For example, one-third of all servers shipped in 2020 were based on an OCP specification. Many of those will be located at the edge as latency increasingly becomes a performance determinant for workloads like content delivery, connected device management and AI.

Panel: Mixing Liquids Into Your Data Center - Global Recipe for Success
This panel discussion by OCP Advanced Cooling Facility leaders will look at key issues and solution evolution associated with adding liquid cooled IT as standard practice in the life cycle of data centers. Discussion will include review of case study and deployed designs, including trade-off discussions – temperatures, dew point operation, heat rejection paths. Optimized use of liquid cooled IT maximizes efficiency, sustainability and enables reuse of heat/energy.

Joey Arato (Facebook) speaking on behalf of OCP.
The Industrial Control Systems (ICS) including Cooling and Building Management Systems (BMS), Power Monitoring Systems (PMS), and Electrical Protection and Control Systems (EPC) that run our data centres are frequently designed around availability rather than security. These systems can lack the security fundamentals, such as modern communication, authentication and authorisation mechanisms that should be expected in critical equipment attached to a network. So how do we drive a marked increase in the security of these systems and environments? In this panel discussion, we showcase how combining efforts as an industry, we can drive significant improvements. We explore the initiatives spearheaded by the Open Compute Project and key industry partners to define:
