  6. 6. Personal learning outcomes After attending this one day classroom course you will:  know what the OCP (Open Compute Project) and Open Hardware terms mean with respect to micro, small, medium and large enterprise data centres, and hyper-scale utility data centres  know the background to OCP and why and how it started  know why OCP and Open Hardware will be a disruptive transformational force for conventional enterprise data centres both in terms of capital and operational expenditure  know the global market intelligence in terms of investment comparisons between conventional and OCP data centres © JRL 6
  7. 7. Personal learning outcomes …cont  know why the world’s largest manufacturers of servers, storage and network equipments are concerned about the impacts of OCP and how they are restructuring their corporations to meet the disruptive challenge posed by OCP and Open hardware data centres  know the importance of holistic design and appreciate how data centre subsystems are closely coupled and as such why a subsystem should not be treated in isolation  know the fundamental hardware components that make up an OCP data centre and the role of each of these components and how synergy is achieved between the ICT subsystems and the data centre power, cooling and environmental facilities and other subsystems including software  know the key differences between a conventional Enterprise Data Centre and a vanity free OCP data centre  be able to describe some examples of OCP data centres  know the pros and cons between conventional enterprise data centres and OCP data centres © JRL 7
  8. 8. Personal learning outcomes …cont  know why the Open community develops hardware products significantly faster than the conventional vendors  know why OCP data centres can achieve energy efficiencies with PUE’s better than 1.08 and why conventional enterprise data centres cannot  know why network topologies are so fundamentally different between conventional and OCP data centres  know how to design and plan for future transformation from conventional enterprise data centre to OCP data centre  know why large USA Banks are rapidly adopting OCP  know why homogeneous OCP data centres can achieve data centre operational staffing levels that are one hundred times better than conventional heterogeneous enterprise data centres  know the principles of simplicity  know all of the data centre subsystems and be able to mind map them graphically in the pursuit of simplification © JRL 8
  9. 9. Personal learning outcomes …cont  know how hardware efficiencies can be achieved through the use of software and lightweight virtual machines such as Linux Containers  know the fundamentals of SDN (Software Defined Networks) and why this technology is reducing the cost of Ethernet switches by 50%  know why the new OCP racks are so space efficient and do not follow the legacy 19inch fixing practice developed in 1911 for railway signalling systems  know the fundamentals of the Value Management Method and be able to execute a basic systematic Function Analysis  know why OCP data centres use significantly less resources compared to conventional enterprise data centres  know how to plan enterprise data halls to ease migration towards OCP © JRL 9
  10. 10. Personal learning outcomes … cont  know why OCP servers are so much more energy efficient and lower cost than conventional servers  know the differences in data hall ICT equipment power and network interfacing and why OCP equipment cord interfaces are all on the front  know why modern OCP servers do not include conventional AC/DC power supply units  know why OCP data centres do not require generator backup for 100% capacity  know why OCP data centres do not use centralised UPS  know why OCP data centres do not require refrigeration cooling systems and the benefits of this approach  know why OCP data centres do not need to operate within the constraints of the ASHRAE temperature envelopes  …………… © JRL 10
