  • Humans are innovative We want to move forward, we want to evolve and as we do so we want open solutions.
  • Before there was ever standard x86 hardware we had massive innovation happening around software. Can anyone tell me who wrote either of these emails?
  • Warp / Windows Sun OS Linux Closed = proprietary Hybrid = Open Core
  • The evolution of the cloud follows the same path as human history. Ultimately open solutions win out.
  • Again we see how early innovators can sell closed source solutions but ultimately open standards win out.
  • Through collaboration, Facebook’s Open Compute Data Center has achieved a PUE that is roughly 15% more efficient than google.
  • 5 projects – all completely open to lower cost and increase data center efficiency

    1. 1. The Open Source Data Center A Platform for innovationCole CrawfordOpen Compute Foundation
    2. 2. Open Source Software - The Beginning“Hello everybody out there using minix —I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big andprofessional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones..” Free Unix! “Starting this Thanksgiving I am going to write a complete Unix- compatible software system called GNU (for Gnus Not Unix), and give it away free(1) to everyone who can use it. Contributions of time, money, programs and equipment are greatly needed”.
    3. 3. Software Timeline Closed Hybrid Open 1970s-80s 1980s-90s 1990s-Present
    4. 4. Evolution of the Cloud Virtualization Devops IAAS / CLOUD 1998 2003 2006 2008 2009 2008 2009 2010 Proprietary Open Source Proprietary Open Core Open Source
    5. 5. In the beginning - Hardware The current rack standard has no specification for depth or height. The only “standard” is the requirement for it to be 19 inches wide. This standard evolved out of the railroad switching era.
    6. 6. Evolution of the Data Center Mainframe Scale Up Scale Out 1970s 1990s 2000’s 2011++ Proprietary Proprietary Proprietary Open Source
    7. 7. Open Compute What is it? Who is it? Why does it exist? 5 Main Verticals – All Open Source • Virt IO To democratize hardware and eliminate gartuitous • Hardware Management differentiation allowing for standardization across tier 1’s • Data Center Design and ODMs. • Open Rack • Storage
    8. 8. Open Compute OCP Prineville Data center Google Data Center PUE = 1.08 PUE = 1.3
    9. 9. State of the Union▪ Production Ready Open Source Software▪ Vanity Free Open Source Hardware Where do we go from here?
    10. 10. The New Standard - Open Compute Certification Validated reference architectures for any combination of hardware + software Turn key supply chain management for hardware procurement Ready to run bare metal provisioning – fully supported by ISV’s / SI’s / Distros
    11. 11. Validated Reference Architecture • Turn Key certification • SI integration • Instant global channel creation • ODM’s become hardware partners • Supply Chain management becomes simple • Support throughout server / software lifecycle
