Open Server Summit Doubles Number of Registrants
Sep 27, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Open Server Summit, a Silicon Valley conference for the server industry taking place October 22-24 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, announced that its registration is running more than double the 2012 levels.
According to a release, the conference now expects total registration to exceed 1,200. "Most events are finding it hard to hold their own on attendance," said Program Chairperson Dr. Lance A. Leventhal, "We think this unprecedented rise shows wide interest in our new emphasis on industry-standard hardware and open-source software. This combination can handle the challenges of cloud computing, big data, mobile access, video, and business intelligence while controlling costs and power needs."
The Summit is also combining forces with OpenStorage Summit to cover Software-defined Storage (SDS) as the way to meet ever-increasing storage demands.
It will include keynotes from a range of contributors to the server environment, including Nexenta, VMware, IBM, HP, Microsoft, Diablo Technologies, and Intel, plus special presentations from Facebook and industry guru Andy Bechtolsheim. It will also have pre-conference seminars on two technologies that will transform the data center, namely software-defined networking (SDN) applications and silicon photonics. SDN will bring a new level of flexibility to network management, while silicon photonics will bring optical speeds at silicon prices.
