OCP Experience Lab

New to the OCP Summit!

The 2019 OCP Global Summit will be held on March 14th-15th 2019 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA.  As a new addition to this event, OCP had dedicated space where Members, Solution Providers and Partners will showcase a variety of solutions built on OCP hardware. These solutions will include both static and live demonstrations.

The purpose of the OCP Experience Lab is to encourage participants to see firsthand the latest innovations and interoperability that is built onto hardware based on OCP principles” stated Rajeev Sharma, Director of Software and Technologies for the Open Compute Project Foundation.

Below are some examples of what can be seen at the OCP Experience Lab in San Jose:

  • Open System Firmware (OSF)

    • Participants: Facebook, Intel & Google

    • Demo topics: Linux Boot (LB), Firmware Support Packages (FSPs), Linux boot (LB) and UEFI. The end user can take advantage of the Open Source Firmware eco-system for faster platform enabling. The users can explore and do proof of concepts on open source firmware.

  • NVMe Value Prop

    • Participants: Intel and Facebook

    • Demo topics: Explore disaggregated OCP storage solution to highlight the NVMe value proposition. The key innovations to explore here are: OCP solution stack for disaggregated flash storage-RocksDB on JBOF lightening, performance and capacity trade-offs, address stranded flash capacity and take advantage of OCP disaggregated flash solutions.

  • NIC 3.0

    • Participants: Facebook, Mellanox, QCT, Broadcom, Intel and TE

    • Demo topics: Workability/Interoperability of NIC 3.0 feature sets on different HW platforms.

  • Edge cloud capability

    • Participants: Nokia and OpenStack.

    • Demo topics: Edge cloud capabilities in a low latency use case with AR/VR content

  • ESA Chassis

    • Participant: MITAC

    • Demo topics: Gain familiarity with the ESA rack with 4 Tioga Pass Node

The OCP Experience Lab will be located on the Concourse level of the San Jose Convention Center, at the entrance to the Expo Hall. We encourage you to stop by,  consume the information, collaborate and contribute to the OCP Community!
