More About OCP

  • Since 2016 OCP vanity free open source hardware has been adopted by the worlds Telecommunications Service Providers to Cloudify their infrastructure for supporting tomorrow’s technologies of  5G, IoT and Smart Cities. This transformation to open source technologies has produced 70% CAPEX reductions and more than 50% OPEX reductions.
  • OCP servers also use 50% less energy than traditional proprietary enterprise servers and Steve will highlight how companies are aligning energy efficiency targets with their use of open source hardware.  Furthermore, the drivers of adoption of OCP are growing more diverse – cost reduction and power efficiency are still the biggest reasons why, but the market is now realizing that feature flexibility and conformance to those specifications approved by OCP provide a measure of “comfort” to the market.
