OCP Copenhagen presentation sept 2017

  1. 1. positive disruptions to traditional data centres through open source collaboration & resetting intuitive mindsets 1John Laban 21 Sept 2017
  2. 2. John Laban Reset Catalyst OCP Foundation john.laban@opencompute.org @rumperedis +44 7710 124487 2
  3. 3. 3
  4. 4. What is OCP ? The Open Compute Project Foundation is a non profit open source hardware community which since its formation in 2011 has been disrupting the 20th Century Data Century Industry www.opencompute.org
  5. 5. Incubation Committee Nine OCP Projects & Technologies StorageData Centre Open RackServer Networking HPC HW Mgmt. InteroperabilityTelco Project Leads
  6. 6. Member makes a contribution Including technical documents Reviewed by community Voted by incubation committee Posted on opencompute.org Available to the public Technology Contribution Process
  7. 7. OCP Technology Principles Scale out - Tool-less design, OCP compliant management tools and documentation Openness - Open Source, Open Interface, OCP Compatible Efficiency - performance, cost, conversion & cooling Impact - Efficiency gains, new technology, leverage/empower prior contributions and enhance supply chain
  8. 8. 12
  9. 9. OCP membership growth spurt 2011 to 2015 ………grew to 88 members and back then community membership was free 2016 to now ………..grew to 200+ members so what’s happening now? .......... 13
  10. 10. 14
  11. 11. Frank says: Openness always wins in the end
  12. 12. Open Collaborative Commons & End of Patents 16 “Yesterday, there was a wall of Tesla patents in the lobby of our Palo Alto headquarters. That is no longer the case. They have been removed, in the spirit of the open source movement, for the advancement of electric vehicle technology.” Elon Musk 2014 : open source collaborative communities innovate more and develop products and solutions faster than closed secretive groups
  13. 13. 17
  14. 14. Linux Foundation & Data Centre Software Adoption 18 2000 2016 >90%
  15. 15. OCP Foundation & Data Centre Hardware Adoption 19 2011 2025 >80% 2016 20% 50% 2020
  16. 16. The trickle down effect of vanity free open source OCP gear 20 OTT’s Telcos Enterprises**
  17. 17. One reason why open always wins 21 Sell Locked In Hardware to end user Open Uncoded Pluggable Optic sells to end user at 80% lower cost
  18. 18. ICT is just a cost of doing business ……… 22
  19. 19. 20th Century Dross removed by OCP : 2 x TOR Switches 4 x Pluggable optics 86 x PSU’s 208 x 40mm Fans 4 x AC Power Strips 86 x IEC rear power cords 120 x RJ45 rear patch cords N+1 CRAC units Access Floor Cables in floor
  20. 20. What does OCP kill in Data Centres ? Centralised UPS and Batteries and those rooms that house them Access Floors Intelligent Power Strips Tools Power Supply Units in ICT gear 20th Century Stupidity Complexity Hardware redundancy Support Technicians Money, energy and material waste Low quality – open source provides better products Proprietary hardware and user lock-in
  21. 21. Resetting Intuitive Mindsets Why 19 inch racks ? Why cabling interfaces on the rear of servers ? Why access false floors in computer rooms ? Why tight control on relative humidity and temperature ? Why centralised UPS and battery rooms and mechanical chillers ? Why rapid break fix and hardware redundancy ? 25
  22. 22. Why 19 inch relay racks ? 26 Module Container
  23. 23. Why 19 inch racks… are not sacrosanct 27 Module Container
  24. 24. This human design makes sense 28 Module Container
  25. 25. 29 TOS = Terms Of Service
  26. 26. 3030 40 mm Fans EIA “U” 80 mm Fans OCP “OU” Open Rack Unit innovations - Server fans “Cube Law”
  27. 27. 3131 Open Rack Unit innovations – large CPU heat sinks
  28. 28. Why are cabling interfaces on the rear of servers ? 32 LAN on front
  29. 29. Why accessible false floors in computer rooms ? 33
  30. 30. Why tight control on relative humidity and temperature ? 34
  31. 31. 35
  32. 32. 36
  33. 33. 37
  34. 34. 38 OCP Gear
  35. 35. Why rapid break fix and hardware redundancy ? 39 Screws x nuts x washers = tools x tools Complex = infinite rack configurations Complex = maximum materials Resilience = hardware redundancy Green Touch points = no x tools Simple = just six rack configurations Simple = minimal materials Resilience = chaos monkey proof
  36. 36. Tool less servicing using OCP green touch points 41
  37. 37. This OCP Server requires no rear access 42
  38. 38. 43
  39. 39. 44
  40. 40. 45
  41. 41. 46
  42. 42. OCP Cost Savings Energy CERN analysis showed OCP servers using 29% less energy Data Centre PUE’’s better than 1.1 Annual UK electricity savings >£5,000 per 40 server rack CAPX AT&T openCORD adoption showing 50% to 70% CAPX reductions in ICT gear Data Centre Facility build & fit out reduced by up to 75% OPEX OTTs achieve one technician to 25,000 physical OCP server nodes Highly automated - no rapid break fix required See Yahoo Japan replacement/fix times video all less than 180 seconds 48
  43. 43. Scandinavia Data Centre Industry Growth 49
  44. 44. Kubler-Ross Change Curve Where are you now ? Resetting Intuitive Mindsets
  45. 45. OCP Design and Operations Philosophy 52
