Facebook's Open Compute Project is no longer only for companies that look like Facebook. This presentation will discuss how companies at any scale can reap the benefits of this quickly growing initiative. With more companies jumping on the Open Compute bandwagon everyone involved benefits from lower cost and higher quality that volume purchasing delivers. Organizations of all sizes will require less upfront capital expenditure to get up and running while realizing significant operational savings. While cloud computing can be attractive when getting something off the ground, running your own Open Compute infrastructure can be significantly cheaper when workloads need more scale, especially workloads that have to be sustained for the long run. Savings that can be allocated to other customer benefiting efforts. Finally, adopters will enjoy the strong support of an open community. Come and learn what OCP can do for your organization.
