SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Open Server Summit (OSS) today announced the opening of registration for its two-day event focused on server and server-based system design for big data, real-time analysis, and cloud computing. The Summit will be held April 13-14, 2016 at the Santa Clara CA Convention Center.
OSS will spotlight ways to achieve high performance, low power consumption, simple expansion, and massive scalability. It will include subjects such as high-speed Ethernet, open switching, silicon photonics, and convergence that were covered in previous years at Ethernet Technology Summit.
The Summit will feature keynotes by such industry leaders as HP Enterprise, Huawei (on 400 GbE), Microsoft, Mellanox, Cavium, Inspur Systems (top server manufacturer in China on hyperscale datacenters), and Micron (new Intel/Micron XPoint memory/storage technology). Sessions will cover scale-out servers, open-source switching, solid state storage, application acceleration, Ethernet roadmap (sponsored by the Ethernet Alliance), software-defined storage, server roadmaps, silicon photonics, and high-speed interfaces. A VC Forum highlights major VCs discussing server-related startups.
OSS provides a technology-focused event where audience members, including hardware design engineers, engineering managers, product engineers, product planners, system designers, and design consultants, will learn how to create and utilize the servers of the future. A special one-on-one chat with the experts session (including beer and pizza) allow for networking with both vendors and customers about a wide range of topics.
About Open Server Summit
Open Server Summit ("OSS"), produced by Conference Concepts, celebrates its 7th anniversary April 13-14 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. OSS focuses on the design of next-generation servers with topics ranging from semiconductors and network interface cards through powerful high-end systems and overall infrastructure design and operation. The conference also covers data center efficiency, SSDs, CoreOS, cloud server design, the future of open server and open storage, and other efforts toward combining industry-standard hardware with open-source software. This year's event will also cover the key (server-related) topics from ETS such as 25/40/50/100/200/400 GbE, convergence, open source switching, Ethernet in data centers, Ethernet roadmap, Ethernet buyer behavior, Open Ethernet, and Ethernet market research.
