Open Server Summit (OSS) focuses on the design of next-generation servers using open specifications and industry-standard hardware. It covers initiatives such as OpenCompute, Open Rack, Open Ethernet, OpenStorage, OpenStack, OpenFlow, and LINARO as well as hardware specs such as DDR4, Hybrid Memory Cube, and NVMe. It also describes standard interfaces, protocols, and APIs such as 10/40/100 GbE, PCIe, Fiber Channel, RapidIO, InfiniBand, and NVM programming.
Industry visionaries will address such topics as the use of SSDs, microservers, software-defined networking, security, and power and cooling requirements. The emphasis will be on creating and using public clouds, designing private clouds, handling big data, and accelerating common applications such as Oracle, SAP, and Hadoop. Special sessions will address cloud servers, server roadmaps, market research, and venture opportunities.
Open Server Summit registration grew by over 50% last year, and we’ve had to expand to a larger venue! There is limited availability and exceptional marketing opportunities for every price point to establish your brand in this growing market. We continue to feature the IT Brand Pulse Innovation Awards, given to companies on the basis of current polling of major IT customers (the key people who use the products every day).
