OCP Global Summit – Open Compute Project
October 18 - October 20
The Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit is the largest gathering of technologists looking to apply the benefits of open source and open collaboration to hardware and software, and rapidly increase the pace of innovation in, near and around the data center and beyond. The in-person event is held twice each year – in the Spring the OCP Regional Summit is held in Europe, with a specific focus on the challenges and solutions unique to that region of the globe; while the OCP Global Summit is our largest, held in the Fall each year in San Jose, California.
2022 Summit Theme
Empowering Open is the theme for the 2022 Global Summit. The world’s most innovative organizations – from hyperscalers to colo-facilities to enterprise to government – have realized the benefits of openly researching, developing, testing, deploying, and sharing technologies through collaboration.
The Open Compute Project has followed the advice of the late Robert Noyce, inventor of the integrated circuit, and INTEL founder, “Don’t be encumbered by history, just go out and do something wonderful.” This year we want to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of our Empowered Open Community that is already doing something wonderful! Lots of things:
- When chilled air no longer can cool, we shift to liquid.
- When electrons are too slow, we embrace light.
- When designs become inflexible, we adopt modularity.
- When data center locations matter, we adapt to the edge.
- When we eliminate direct emissions, we go after indirect emissions.
The OCP Empowered Community is also solving problems in the areas of security, time domain, chiplets, connectivity, and more.
This year’s Summit will be three jam-packed days, and brings together the brightest engineers and business leaders who will share the technologies present in best-in-class solutions. You will hear about challenges to match the fast-paced demand for advanced compute, storage, and network performance.
The Future Technologies Symposium will coincide with the OCP Global Summit and attendees will hear about emerging challenges and how these may be addressed. Simultaneously, the Engineering Workshops will discuss new products, specifications, and key learnings. Our Experience Center will provide an up-close and personal look at some of these emerging solutions, while the Expo Hall will feature the latest innovations from leading-edge companies.
