Barreleye for the Masses!

Abstract

This session will focus on Mark III’s statement of direction to enable enterprises and service providers to acquire the Barreleye OCP system in the near future.  Barreleye is an OCP system designed with OpenPOWER technologies that was first revealed to the public by Rackspace in 2015.  Some of this session will also focus on some interesting things our team of systems engineers learned while testing and iterating on our own Barreleye system in the Mark III lab.
