Executive Track - Schneider Electric: Hacking the Conventional Data Center Power Infrastructure
Open Compute has had a revolutionary impact on data center design, offering many simplicity and cost saving benefits. To become more mainstream, we believe critical questions need to be answered about the implications of OCP on the upstream power infrastructure. Can data centers still achieve Tier 3 redundancy? How do I support traditional and OCP loads in the same data center? This presentation will address these and other questions, and propose a series of simplified architectures to support OCP. We will discuss redundancy, availability, and flexibility implications, as well as present a cost analysis. Schneider Electric embraces the spirit of OCP by openly sharing this analysis and making these simplified reference designs freely available.

Executive Track - SanDisk: Enabling a New Generation of Services & Applications, Never Before Thought Possible..
Today's flash solutions and arrays can address most data center problems – they are low power, high performance, somewhat scalable  and highly reliable but there is one thing that is holds it back – Favorable Economics. It’s simply way too expensive for at scale workloads making flash out of reach.  We’ll explore how to make flash storage within reach.
