In just a few weeks, the Open Compute Foundation (OCP) will host its annual must-attend Global Summit in San Jose, California, on March 4th-5th. The conference theme is “Open for All” and will bring nearly 4,000 key decision makers from the world’s most innovative organizations under one roof to focus on solutions and opportunities facing the hardware and software infrastructure ecosystem, to the edge and beyond. Companies of all sizes, including traditional hyperscalers, colocation facilities, enterprises and government agencies will explore the road to adoption of open technologies.

Facebook and Intel are some of the featured keynote speakers during the two-day event alongside almost 100 engineering workshops, executive tracks, and speaking sessions.  Before the Summit kicks off, the third OCP Future Technologies Symposium will be featured as a full-day track on March 3. The Symposium will focus on technologies that aim to solve future industry problems and accelerate productization through partnerships and open source R&D. 

“Cultivating open collaboration, even between competitors, is key to maximizing innovation, reducing complexity in tech components and, ultimately, enabling more data and services to move to the cloud,” commented Bill Carter, Chief Technology Officer at the Open Compute Project Foundation. “By hosting this forward-looking event that attracts like-minded pioneers who promote the adoption of open source technologies, we hope to build awareness that the innovations and solutions resulting from open hardware technology are solving today’s and tomorrow’s challenges better and faster than deploying open source alone.”
