Open Server Summit Reports Doubling Of Registration

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Open Server Summit, a leading Silicon Valley conference for the server industry taking place October 22-24 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, today announced that its registration is running more than double the 2012 levels. 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.

The Open Server Summit will cover a wide range of software and hardware standards, including:• Open Compute• OpenRack• Open Ethernet• OpenStorage• OpenFlow• OpenStack• Open Networking• Open Daylight• OpenDOVE• OpenZFS• NVMe• DDR4• RapidiIO

It will include keynotes from a wide range of major 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 emerging 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.
