Quanta QCT Project Olympus
Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) fully supports Microsoft’s Project Olympus and has participated in the creation of derivative designs and specifications to their ecosystem.

QCT has contributed the AMD EPYC server design to OCP. The AMD EPYC server and the DX-88 storage expansion JBOD are two of the most notable projects that QCT will make available under the Project Olympus ecosystem this year. QCT will not only make these two systems available with the Project Olympus PMDU (Power Monitoring Distribution Units), but will also convert these systems to work with standard C13/C14 PDU types for more constrained colocation requirements.

This presentation will provide details about the AMD EPYC server and the DX-88 storage expansion JBOD.
