Just wanted to drop a quick note about an awesome technology summit that is taking place in San Joe, CA – The Fifth Open Compute Summit. For those of you unfamiliar with the Open Compute Project, here is a snippet from their website. This is a great organization and its exciting to see the change taking place in the Data Center
The Open Compute Project Foundation is a rapidly growing community of engineers around the world whose mission is to design and enable the delivery of the most efficient server, storage and data center hardware designs for scalable computing. We believe that openly sharing ideas, specifications and other intellectual property is the key to maximizing innovation and reducing operational complexity in the scalable computing space. The Open Compute Project Foundation provides a structure in which individuals and organizations can share their intellectual property with Open Compute Projects.
