Open Compute Regional Summit 2024 - Future Technologies Symposium

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

Lisbon, Portugal

The OCP Regional Summit in Europe serves as a platform where technical and business leaders from EMEA come together to tackle crucial issues related to data center sustainability, energy efficiency, and heat reuse. The focus is on exploring how innovations from hyperscale data center operators can contribute to solving these challenges. The Summit also highlights deployments of specific OCP-recognized data center equipment in the EMEA region.

Time: 3:55pm – 4:15pm
Location: Lisbon Congress Centre

The OpenPOWER Foundation will be sharing a talk with Jabil in the Future Technologies Symposium.

“Large Memory Server Design Overview” Abstract: With the advancement of AI workloads and their increasingly large data set requirements, the need for high memory capacity and density is becoming paramount for the industry. There have been advances in memory connectivity that promise to deliver solutions that will meet these needs. This specification shows a design that utilizes two of these technologies, OpenCAPI Memory Interface (OMI) and Compute Express Link (CXL), to deliver from 24TB to a potentially jaw-dropping 32TB of memory in an air-cooled, single socket OCP DC-MHS inspired 19’’ 2U chassis. This design solution, a collaboration between the OpenPower Foundation, Jabil Inc.,Raptor Computing Systems, SAP, and Wooden Data Center, is currently in the design phase. In this specification, physical limitations, interconnects, and power/thermal constraints will be highlighted. The end goal would be to contribute this design specification to the OCP community.
