Open Data Center Committee (ODCC) is co-founded by Baidu, Tencent, Alibaba, China Telecom, China Mobile, Intel, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT). It is a non-profit industrial organization, focusing on researching open hardware such as server, data center and open network technologies to meet the growing demand on hardware in Chinese market.
Scorpio Multi-node Server is an ODCC project sponsored by China Mobile. It is a 4U size server chassis with 8 compute nodes or 4 storage nodes in maximum. It can also be mixture of different kind of servers, like 4 compute nodes and 2 storage nodes. Compared with traditional ATCA or Blade server, Multi-node Server's advantages include:
1.It is easier and cheaper to extend.
2.It has more choices for compute and storage nodes combination.
3.It is easier to maintain by engineers.
4. Even higher density.
5. 4U is more flexible than 10~14U Blade server.
OPNFV develops an integrated and tested open source platform that can be used to build NFV functionality. We are running OPNFV releases Colorado on Scorpio Multi-node smoothly and will try recent Danube on it in China Mobile’s Novonet (Next Generation Network) laboratory.
This presentation will introduce how OPNFV and Scorpio Multi-node server fit perfectly together. It's a fully open implementation of open software and open hardware.
