The Open Compute Project Foundation is a community of engineers around the world, whose mission is to design and enable the delivery of the most efficient server, storage, networking and data center hardware designs for scalable computing. We believe that openly sharing ideas, specifications and other intellectual property is the key to maximizing innovation, accelerating market change and reducing operational complexity in the scale compute space. The Open Compute Project Foundation provides a structure, in which individuals and organizations can share their intellectual property as new or existing projects. The Open Compute Project has demonstrated value creation, as exampled by the adoption of open compute product, the contribution of technologies from the hardware supply chain and the genesis of new companies taking advantage of the opportunity. The Open Compute Project is focused on creating an incubation channel that will host an IP library lowering barriers to entry into the enterprise hardware market and enabling a next generation of hardware companies.

  21. 21. Impact of Open Compute Monday, September 30, 13
  22. 22. OCP Networking Project Monday, September 30, 13
  23. 23. How does OCP create value? Measuring open computes success ▪ We think of two levers when we measure OCP. ▪ Technology contributions e.g. Intel’s SiPho contribution. ▪ Adoption of open compute product e.g. Rackspace, Riotgames. Monday, September 30, 13
  24. 24. Contributions The contribution pipeline is considered successful ▪ Full stack; rack, compute, storage, interconnects, networking. ▪ January summit we received 10 outside contributions. Monday, September 30, 13
  25. 25. Adoption The adoption pipeline is considered successful ▪ Rackspace, Riot Games are the public examples. ▪ There are many other examples of corporations adopting or testing OCP gear (Finserv and scale compute markets). Monday, September 30, 13
  26. 26. What is OCP’s operational framework? This framework enables the foundation to pull the contribution and adoption levers ▪ Community is pillar #1. ▪ without community you have nothing. ▪ Economics is pillar #2. ▪ the foundation must create economic value. ▪ Institutional support is pillar #3. ▪ Very important in the long term. Complex and resource intensive. Monday, September 30, 13
  27. 27. Community enablement Tools, Knowledge sharing, self-organizing community. ▪ Tools ▪ Kicad, Grabcad, Upverter, wiki, spec’s. ▪ Knowledge sharing ▪ Engineering workshops, discussion groups, feedback loops. ▪ Self-organizing communities. ▪ OCPT, OCPT, Project Scorpio Monday, September 30, 13
  28. 28. ▪ China ▪ Tokyo ▪ Taiwan ▪ Korea ▪ Russia Monday, September 30, 13
  29. 29. Regional chapters What has to happen in the regions ▪ Build on the existing community both in volume and velocity. ▪ Drive economic value in the form of contributions and adoption. ▪ Build out a recurring sponsorship pipeline to enable the community to organize. Monday, September 30, 13
  30. 30. 3. The APAC story OCP APAC is accelerating in volume and velocity ▪ Project Scorpio. ▪ Competitors working together. ▪ OCPJ ▪ Informal networks self-organizing. ▪ OCPT ▪ Went from zero to 60 in less than five months. Monday, September 30, 13
