A Programmable Network - Presented by Delta
In these slides, we would be presenting “A Programmable Network”. We would be showing the power of the programmable network, when it is combined with Delta Networks’ programmable white-box platform. We would explain the background, and show actual Delta Switches running Cumulus OS as two data centers, connected through a Delta Switch running OpenFlow. We would then show our platform elements, such as fans, LED and environmental being controlled by REST API.
This would show the relationship between white-box switches, programmable flows and programmable platforms end to end.

Designing for Cloud Workloads - Presented by Ampere Computing
As cloud computing has emerged as the ascendant computing paradigm, it has driven the proliferation of new classes of workloads, ranging from web search and categorization to content hosting and distribution to machine learning.

These cloud workloads have distinctive requirements that drive the need for a new architecture, one that is designed with the future in mind, and not bound by the burdens of legacy compatibility.
This presentation will discuss the role of CPUs, accelerators and software in meeting the needs of these workloads, as well as other design considerations for the Open Compute Project community.

Using “Open” Building Blocks to Enable Emerging SSD Form Factors - Presented by Marvell
As NAND technology adoption grows in cloud and enterprise data centers, the use cases are evolving and increasing with differing requirements.  To help address this phenomenon, new form factor SSD solutions are emerging and having “open” common building block chipsets is an ideal strategy.  It optimizes the solutions for each specific use case while reducing time to market and increasing engineering return on investment efforts with block reuse.  In this session, we will cover some of the emerging solutions Marvell is enabling with our “open” building block controller chipsets and their associated value propositions for the OCP community.

NVMe Over Fabrics - High performance SSDs Networked for Composable Infrastructure - Presented by Mellanox
There is a new very high performance open source SSD interfaced called NVMe over Fabrics now available to expand the capabilities of networked storage solutions. It is an extension of the local NVMe SSD interface developed a few years ago driven by the need for a faster interface for SSDs. Similar to the way native disk drive SCSI protocol was networked with Fibre Channel 20 years ago, this technology enables NVMe SSDs to be networked and shared with their native protocol. By utilizes ultra-low latency RDMA technology to achieve data sharing across a network without sacrificing the local performance characteristics of NVMe SSDs, true composable infrastructure is now possible.

Satisfying Future Data Center Needs with the Latest Technologies – Power, High Speed, Thermal and Diagnosis - Presented by Wiwynn
The requirements of data center IT gears are driven by applications, operation, service, and infrastructure. These factors are time variant.  However, the demands for higher computation power, network bandwidth, better power efficiency and serviceability have been very consistent throughout the years.  
Wiwynn technologies are focused on developing high power, high speed and thermal technologies to meet the needs of future data centers.  Among these technologies are high voltage DC power, PCIe Gen 4 and rack level/immersion cooling.  In addition, with extensive insight from years of mass production and testing experiences, Wiwynn products have the diagnosis/healing capabilities to bring the IT gears to another horizon of serviceability.  Wiwynn products encompass these technologies.  We will show the broad applications of Wiwynn products to address data center needs.

Beyond Capacity - Presented by Seagate
Storing data is not driven simply by technology but also by deeper and more emotional reasons. When we add the fundamental calling of our engineering efforts along with innovation, we can change the world.   We will examine the role of data in our lives, look at the fundamental questions of how to gain the most effective model for being efficient, and then look at several technologies that enables us to create a better future for those generations that will follow our generation.  The presentation ends by reflecting on what we can do together.

Building OCP Server Solutions with Project Olympus Building Blocks - Presented by ZT Systems
The Project Olympus building blocks provide an excellent foundation to develop and configure server solutions for specific server workloads (compute, cold storage, performance storage, machine learning). In addition, working with “known good” building blocks significantly improves the time to market of optimized server solutions. If further hardware customization is required, the development of new platforms is streamlined within Project Olympus building blocks.
