The Open Compute Project Foundation is gearing up for its annual Global Summit in San Jose, California, and this year it’s already shaping up to be a can’t-miss event. This week, OCP announced the Summit’s influential keynote speaker lineup, which features representation from industry giants like Facebook, Samsung and Intel. 

The annual Summit brings together more than 3,600 key decision makers, executives, engineers, developers and suppliers to help grow, drive and support the open hardware ecosystem for data centers and beyond. The theme for this year’s OCP Global Summit, which takes place March 4-5 at the San Diego Convention Center, is “Open For All”.

The leadoff speaker, Katharine Schmidtke from Facebook, will  discuss the history of the Open Compute Project, now entering its tenth year. She will focus on  recent advancements in server, network and rack level disaggregation.
