I recently attended the OCP Summit for the first time and I was impressed by the size of this growing event. The San Jose Convention Center was packed with industry experts – all eager to discuss how to move the Open Compute Project (OPC) forward. I had the opportunity to present on how PCI Express® technology is meeting OCP needs for more and more bandwidth, as well as meet with attending press and analysts to discuss trends in I/O technology, form factors and what’s next for the industry as bandwidth demands continue to explode.
