Open Compute Project: An Overview - John Linville, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

The Open Compute Project was started a couple of years ago with the goal of ""efficient computing infrastructures at the lowest possible cost"".  With initial backing from Facebook and continued support from a broader community of hardware vendors, OCP is becoming a significant concern in our industry.
This talk will provide an overview of the origins of the OCP, what it is doing, and where it may be going.  Special emphasis will be made on how the OCP is applying open source principles in pursuit of their larger goals.
