Touch-safe High Voltage DC Powering of Server Racks using Digital Electricity

Digital electricity technology sends electricity in brief packets that contain energy and data. The safe transfer of each packet is verified at the source and destination using a protocol called Packet Energy Transfer or PET. If an exposed conductor is touched, or the wire is short circuited or incorrectly installed, the transmitter will detect the error and stop sending energy within 0.003 seconds. Even when transferring thousands of Watts of power, digital electricity networks can be installed at much lower cost, without conduit or armored cabling, using only technician-grade labor in the same fashion as Ethernet cable. Moreover, the technology has embedded data capabilities for energy management, monitoring and control.

VoltServer has completed dozens of digital electricity installations that include hi-rises, stadiums, conference centers and hospitals. This will be the first presentation addressing data centers. Data will be presented demonstrating an OCP compatible power supply being powered with digital electricity. The only inputs to the supply will be a hybrid copper-fiber cable channeling both high bandwidth data for use by the servers and digital electricity.

Open Rack Management Backplane Connector and Shared Cooling Zone

Intel and Quanta recently collaborated on an Open Rack demo to showcase Intel technology and provide a software development vehicle for Intel Rack Scale Architecture (RSA).  The demo rack was shown at OCP summit 2015, and the past two Intel Developer Forum (IDF) events.  Two of the unique features of the demo are the rack management backplane and rack-level cooling.  The existing Open Rack standard does not address rack-level management or cooling.  Now, Intel and Quanta are submitting design guides for the backplane connector and shared cooling module to Open Rack.  In this talk, Intel will share the details presented in the design guides, and lead a discussion on how such features could be standardized for Open Rack.
