Small Steps From Individual Participants Lead to Giant Steps in the Community
Limited Capacity seats available

Today’s datacenter is evolving.  “One size fits all” no longer fits as new and emerging workloads are used to support the explosion of services, applications and data in the cloud.  What does the server of tomorrow look like?  How does ARM complement x86?  Are we looking at the next inflection point in server technologies?  In this session, AMD’s Fellow of Cloud Technology, Bob Ogrey will discuss these topics and show how semiconductor companies like AMD will respond to these market dynamics.

OCP Engineering Workshop - Storage Session

The follow discussions and presentations will take place during the OCP Storage session:

Chassis Design Best Practices to Optimize Hard Drive I/O Performance - Richard Repp (Seagate)

Rich will present Seagate's best practices for chassis design and validation testing as it relates to the sensitivities of HDD I/O.  This presentation will cover common issues encountered in chassis design that affect HDD I/O and then discuss some simple ways to avoid these issues.

Cloud Storage Challenges and Opportunities - Dimitar Boyn i/o Switch

Dimitar will speak about "Cloud Storage Challenges and Opportunities". In particular, he will explain key limitations of current technologies including (1) SAN and NAS, (2) SSD and (3) software defined storage (SDS). Each technological limitation points to new thinking and new opportunities.

For example, it is mathematically demonstrable that RAID data protection cannot scale to multi-petabyte arrays, i.e., it literally does not work and data is not protected, and, even if it did work, rebuilding a 4 TB or 6 TB or soon a 12 TB hard drive takes so long that there is a significant window for additional drive failures. Big data solutions obfuscate this problem but make no attempt to solve it. The correct  solution lies in new data protection algorithms. Amplidata, CleverSafe and Scality offer data protection based on erasure coding (EC) or Reed-Solomon algorithms. While EC may be "the new RAID" actual implementations are largely in the form of software defined storage (SDS) solutions. In the cloud, the need for SDS is unclear because its value proposition includes making disparate storage resources homogeneous, but that is a value proposition for enterprises. At the same time, enterprises will never universally adopt SDS, which is arguably an elaborate Band Aid. What is needed are new open standards.

1 - Carlos Cardenas, UTSA will lead the discussion on the following

  • Network specification

    • ONIE

      • How to adopt this further with vendors?

      • Potential governance of spec?

      • Test suite(s)

    • NOS (Network Operating System)

      • Shared requirements?

    • Configuration Management

      • How do users manage NOS configs?

      • Chef, Puppet, Ansible?

    • Real-time data monitoring

    • What’s needed from the HW?

    • What should the consumable interface look like?

  • Network testing (and potentially certification)

    • What should be included?

    • HW

      • L2/L3 forwarding packets per second

      • Frame size support

      • Full mesh vs partial

      • SFP/SFP+/QSFP+ cable inter-operability

    • SW

      • Number of BGP sessions

      • Re-Convergence times


2 - Accton product submission to Open Compute Networking group - Jeff Catlin

3 - Updates on Open Network Linux Project - Rob Sherwood

Open Network Linux (http://openetlinux.org) is an ONIE compatible Linux distribution/network operating system for OCP and networking hardware.  Since it's launch at OCP in January, it's had a number of developments including support for additional switches, a platform API, and increased community participation.  I will provide updates on the project's progress and future directions, along with a brief tutorial on how to use and install ONL.

 

4 - Open Network Install Environment - Project Status - Curt Brune, Cumulus

The Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) is an open source initiative that defines an open install environment for bare metal network switches.  ONIE enables a bare metal switch ecosystem where end users have a choice among different network operating systems.

If you are deploying bare metal network switches learn how ONIE can help you manage your network OS deployments and switch inventory.

This will be a working session where we discuss the current status of the ONIE project and work on the following:

  • ONIE Specification for x86 systems
  • ONIE testing and certification
  • ONIE project communications
