SmartNIC: FPGA Innovation in OCS Servers for Microsoft Azure
Live Stream - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBpO6g9A3jI

Microsoft uses field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to improve performance, reduce power consumption, and provide new capabilities in Azure datacenters. We have designed an FPGA board that plugs into Microsoft-designed OCS servers. In this talk we discuss SmartNIC, an application of FPGAs to networking to enhance our NICs with reconfigurable logic for our software defined networking stack, and demonstrate applications of SmartNIC and FPGAs running in Azure.

OCP Adoption – Revolution with 21” racks vs. Transition from 19” racks
Live Stream - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqB2Z2XZ8oc

Wiwynn shall present our intelligent design of a high-density server by OCP certified mother boards in an chassis for EIA 19” rack. When Open Compute Project proves its efficiency in the energy consumption, reliability and cost for data centers, its demand grows time to time. However, Open Compute Project defined Open Rack spec which is different than conventional rack. To accommodate OCP project means a new investment for traditional data centers.

Carmel, a new generation product of EIA 19” 2U high density server accommodating OCP MB combines the advantages of OCP Leopard MB with the application of EIA 19” chassis. Carmel shows not only the efficiency and reliability of OCP MB but also the application flexibility.

For the 2U 4Nodes architecture, there are 4 high performance MB nodes in a 2U system and each MB node could accommodate 1 full-height half-length PCIe add on card and 1 SSD with 9.5mm thickness; for the 2U 2Nodes, each MB node could accommodate 3 pcs full-height half-length PCIe add on cards and 6 pcs hot-swappable SSDs. Furthermore, the system is designed with Tool-less concept to ease all the maintenance of MBs, SSDs, Fan modules and PSUs.

Integration of up to 4 OCP server boards and EIA 19” 2U chassis converged the OCP benefits and existing investment of data centers seamlessly. Through the sophisticated system design, all the components including Server Sleds, PSUs, Fans, Drives are easy to maintain. System configuration and drives maintenance are front serviceable in the cold aisle like OCP achieved its success.

Soft-Hardware: The Foundation of Cloud 2.0
Live Stream - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT0tJG0COTo

This presentation will be a continuation the journey / story outlined in Rackspace's presentation from the OCP 2015 Summit in San Jose.

"...software is eating the world." Many people have heard this phrase, first coined by Marc Andreesen, in 2011. It is now a well-understood phenomenon. Less well understood, is why this phenomenon is facing headwinds, brought about by the decline of Moore's Law.

We all want ever-smarter, more-pervasive, and lower cost computing. We want a world with self-driving cars and five-dollar genome sequences, with instant answers to our most complex questions about the health of our bodies and businesses. These things may be born-in or powered-by a cloud, but not one that exists, today. For many scientists, researchers, engineers, analysts, and other creative minds working on these new horizons, today's clouds are not enough... they are not powerful enough, are too costly, and lack critical functions and tools.

This is a big problem with big opportunities. Addressing it will require a significant shift in how systems are designed, affecting hardware, firmware, and operating systems. Solutions of the future will be powered by new processing, memory, and storage elements, with new software interfaces. And these solutions must operate flexibly with the existing operating systems, software, and tools already in use on today's cloud.

Put together, we call these solutions "Soft-Hardware" – powered by Open Source Hardware & Software movements. The intent of this session is to share Rackspace and its partners are doing to bring this technology to the cloud and to developers and end-users, new and old.

This session will talk about progress, problems, opportunities, and insights that Rackspace has gained on this journey (including updates on the Barreleye server announced during Summit 2015, and what's next). By the end, the audience will have a clearer understanding of how Soft-Hardware will come to life on clouds, how Open Compute and other open source community members can participate in the journey, and ways to profit in the process.

Use of Alternative Natural Fiber Filled Polypropylene (NFFPP) Plastic in Data Center Equipment Design to Improve Sustainability
Live Stream - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5jStCVUg4s

This alternative plastic material displaces common server plastics such as PC+ABS, with a material that has a lower lifecycle environmental impact. Our efforts have resulted in several variations of a natural-fiber filled polypropylene (NFFPP) plastic that is currently being used in multiple products in our data centers across the world.
Facebook wants to present our experience to the community as a starting point to build upon so that this material and other alternative materials may be further developed to reduce the impact of our equipment on the earth. We will discuss the research that has gone into our lifecycle assessment (LCA) of the material. We will:
- explain our approach to sustainable design and incorporating LCA into our material selection decisions
- show how we are using the material in our data center equipment

- explain some of the special considerations required in designing with the material

- give an overview of the required approach to mold setup and processing
