Session on the POWER architecture, highlighting how OpenPOWER addresses industry demands for open and composable approaches to underlying infrastructure
Online PR News – 04-April-2016 – The Open Server Summit (OSS) and the OpenPOWER Foundation today announced a special session at OSS conference session on the POWER architecture, highlighting how OpenPOWER addresses industry demands for open and composable approaches to underlying infrastructure.
The session, on Thursday, April 14 session from 10:00 am – 11:00 am and open to all attendees, will discuss how designers can use the POWER architecture to innovate across the hardware and software stack in applications aimed at big data, high-performance computing, real-time analytics, clouds, video and image processing, genomics, and virtual reality. General and acceleration use cases will illustrate how the OpenPOWER infrastructure is constructed for collaborative development, and how the OpenPOWER ecosystem which covers supporting products ties together hundreds of server projects that are already underway.
Speakers will be Calista Redmond, President, OpenPOWER Foundation and Director, OpenPOWER Global Alliances at IBM and Norman James, Lead Engineer OpenPOWER Enablement at IBM. Mr. James will also be a panelist for the Server Roadmaps panel on Wednesday, April 13 from 4 to 5 pm, and Mr. James and Ms. Redmond will host a POWER Architecture table at the Beer Pizza event on Wednesday, April 13 from 7:30 to 9 pm.
All the POWER-related sessions are available to attendees for free, as are keynotes by such industry leaders as HP Enterprise, Ethernet Alliance, Micron, Microsoft, Mellanox, Cavium, Lenovo, and Inspur Systems (top server manufacturer in China).
About Open Server Summit
Open Server Summit (OSS), produced by Conference Concepts, celebrates its 7th anniversary April 13-14 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. OSS focuses on the design of next-generation servers with topics ranging from semiconductors and network interface cards through powerful high-end systems and overall infrastructure design and operation. The conference also covers data center efficiency, SSDs, CoreOS, cloud server design, the future of open server and open storage, and other efforts toward combining industry-standard hardware with open-source software. This years event will also cover the key (server-related) topics from ETS such as 25/40/50/100/200/400 GbE, convergence, open source switching, Ethernet in data centers, Ethernet roadmap, Ethernet buyer behavior, Open Ethernet, and Ethernet market research.
Registration is proceeding at a record pace, so those interested should sign up now. Pre-registration is available at www.openserversummit.com
