Cloud and AI - presented by Microsoft
We live in an era of public clouds composed of millions of servers living in more than 100 datacenters spread out throughout the world. A growing percentage of workloads running in Azure rely on deep neural networks (DNNs) as a fundamental component. Every week, a novel DNN emerges that surpasses conventional algorithms used for image classification, natural language understanding, translation, etc. Achieving higher levels of performance on these workloads require novel chips and systems instantiated in the form of new instructions for CPUs, enhanced GPUs, FPGAs, AI processors, and disruptive distributed systems. This, combined with the higher power density encountered as lithography shrinks down to sub 10nm, is driving a renaissance of computer architecture. Innovations up-and-down the stack are yielding greater performance improvements year-over-year than what we saw during the golden era of Instruction Level Parallelism and fast clock rates (1990s). It is not without its challenges, especially in packaging, cooling, networking and software, regardless, we shall see a 1000x improvement in the next 5 years.

Differentiated Data Center Servers using Reconfigurable Logic - presented by Microsoft
Hardware specialization is the most effective path to higher performance and efficiency, which is attractive for large scale data centers.  Supporting many different hardware instances to get that specialization for different workloads, however, is expensive.  Each system must be separately qualified, different spares must be stocked, volumes are lower for each type of hardware increasing costs, and so on.  Microsoft achieves the benefits of specialization with common hardware by including an FPGA in every Azure and Bing server.  In this talk, I describe how Microsoft converged on a single FPGA platform that supports cutting edge performance on very different acceleration workloads, specifically accelerated software defined networking for Azure and deep learning inference for Bing.

Four Principles to Realize the Benefits of OCP for the Data Centre Facility
OCP enables a lot of benefits for the datacenter facility, not only for the ICT gear. The deployment of OCP hardware is increasing fast now, but where are the savings for the facility?    The principles of OCP; Efficiency, Scale, Openness and Impact are also valid for the datacenter facility. Although with choosing OCP big benefits are predicted for the facility design and operations, the revolution in the facility it is not quite visible yet.    In this working session presentation, the OCP optimised data centre facility design principles are explained how to realize and maximize OCP deployment for your facility. Topics discussed are among others   Data Centre Facility CAPX costs (not ICT gear), construction en fit-out time comparrison related to traditional Uptime Tier III Data Centre Facility but also energy efficiency, and operational and maintenance savings.    Additional to these principles also some statements will be positioned to follow up between the OCP datacenter stream and other OCP streams to discuss combined benefit opportunities. As an example the definition of the OCP optimise data centre facility service level agreement.     Stijn de Kruijf, working with Royal HaskoningDHV, a large and independent engineering company, is contributing datacenter facility design for over 15 years. In this period he is involved in large colo-cation, hyperscale and wholesale datacenters.

Things We Can Learn from Simulating DC Networks
Data Center networks carry the superposition of a large number of workloads resulting from complex communication patterns between many tiers of services and applications. It is particularly interesting to model a background traffic pattern based on a subset of the existing traffic, and impose a foreground workload based on the most demanding of the emerging traffic demands. For the foreground traffic, we propose to model a traffic pattern that anticipates disaggregation trends, and storage is a reasonably well understood and relevant instance of disaggregation.In our context disaggregation means that a resource that was traditionally deployed as part of a server I/O subsystem is now remote and accessed over the Data Center network. We do simulate these two superimposed workloads at reasonable scale, with TCP endpoints included, and with fairly accurate queuing models for the Data Center switches. We find that results sometimes match the intuition, and sometimes do not.

Efficiency Analysis of Open Hardware Rack Power Architectures
Open Compute systems are redefining how power is converted and distributed within an IT rack by replacing internal server power supplies with centralized, rack level, power supplies. This topic will cover an efficiency analysis of 3 rack architectures:  Conventional internal server power supplies, 12VDC centralized rack level power supplies, and 48VDC centralized rack level power supplies. 48VDC rack distribution can provide the most efficient power path, the majority of gains come from reduction of PSU oversizing and centralizing to the rack level.

OCP Ready Colocation Facility Pilot Program
The OCP Data Center Facility Project completed the development of the OCP Colocation Facility Guidelines and Checklist with collaboration by the OCP community. The Guidelines assist a Colocation Facility Provider in understanding the unique requirements of Open Compute Racks, Power, and Hardware. The Checklist allows the Provider to assess their facility/facilities compliance to the Acceptable and Optimum requirements.     The OCP Foundation developed the requirements and process for a Colocation Facility Provider to become a listed Solution Provider on the OCP Marketplace. The Facility Provider must perform an assessment of their facility using the available Scorecard, which is to be presented and reviewed by the Data Center Facility Project Community and the Incubation Committee. The Facility Provider must also meet all requirements set forth by the OCP Foundation.    The Beta Release was provided to two Facility Providers with locations in the EMEA region. The EMEA region has been identified as a primary region for OCP technology growth and identifying Colocation Facility Providers as a key driver in facilitating the use of OCP Hardware by promoting qualified data center white space for deployments. This presentation will cover feedback offered by the Facility Providers which participated in the Beta Program and the integration into the General Availability Program.

Achieving Deterministic IO with Lightning JBOF
To achieve deterministic IO behavior on the OCP JBOF (Just Bunch Of Flash) platform, ie Lightning, is sometimes challenging as the flash workloads at Facebook are in general sensitive to IO latency, especially read IO latency outliers.   Controlling the IO latency gets even harder as the single SSD capacity grows and sharing the SSD among multiple applications is inevitable.    This talk explores ways to improve the IO latency leveraging the recently standardized NVMe Sets and IO Determinism specifications.     We will present our Linux-based software architecture, various concepts to use Sets and IOD to realize better latency, and the tradeoffs therein.  We hope this effort will enlighten the audience with new ideas to achieve better IO characteristic and broaden the adoption of OCP JBOF to applications that were previously prohibited by their demanding IO latency requirements.

An Open Approach: Virtualizing the CO for Mobile Services
The central office is usually the last physical interface in a network for service delivery to the end customer and therefore plays a critical role for communication service providers (CSPs) and is quickly becoming a key area for competitive advantage for service agility, cost savings, and new service revenue by leveraging compute capabilities at the network edge. There are 10K+ central offices in the US alone which have traditionally been built using proprietary, complex and single-function boxes and previous attempts to virtualize the central office have resulted in proprietary or limited approaches by building components from scratch to address specific issues. This greatly limits agility and innovation, given the time it takes to purchase and configure new equipment, and become profitable.     With the latest developments in orchestration tools and SDN controllers, in-built capabilities for a virtualized central office are now available to create solutions that support the delivery of residential, business and mobile services. Building on the Virtual Central Office concept debuted last year at the OPNFV Summit in Beijing that demonstrated both residential and enterprise services, the VCO Demo 2.0 has evolved to mobile services by focusing on the implementation of vRAN (virtual radio access network) as well as the virtualized mobile packet core elements (vEPC) which represent a minimum viable mobile access network configuration. The demo will highlight the collaborative power of open source communities to innovate and collaborate around one of the industry’s most pressing use cases, offer service providers around the globe a framework for virtualizing services at the edge, and highlight the underlying elements, including an OCP OpenRack Tundra configuration from Penguin and on-site OCP AirFrame servers from Nokia. The session will show a path forward for others wishing to replicate a similar demo in their lab environments and a portfolio of demo assets will be made available to the community.

Modular Architecture – Enabled by Flyover Twin-Ax
As network speeds increase to 56/112 Gbps PAM4, and the number of I/O lanes increase to 256 and beyond, so do system design challenges. Signal integrity, thermal and packaging considerations place extreme constraints on the entire path from silicon to the front/back panels. This opens the door for a novel approach for system architecture.

Samtec’s Modular Flyover™ System Design is enabled by its EyeSpeed™ twin-ax cables interconnecting high-performance front/back panel and on board connectors. The modular design results in a flexible, scalable network system architecture that provides the highest possible performance.

In this study, the OCP Wedge network switch has been re-architected as a modular system, and its design and performance results are shown. Simulation and measured data for high-speed channel performance and thermal management is shown, along with the flexibility and cost savings from modular design architecture. The OCP Wedge can be easily scaled from 3.2 Tbps to 6.4 /12.8/ 25.6 Tbps with this modular architecture. The various modules in this architecture can also be used-as-is to fit into different OCP Top of Racks (ToR) like Telco, OCPv2 and Olympus. The same modularity can be applied to Middle of Row (MoR), End of Row(EoR) and Spine Switches by leveraging the OCP Facebook BackPack’s and SidePlane’s concept.

This novel modular design approach may become a preferred solution for 56/112 Gbps “future proof” systems, with SI performance that has enough margin for all 256 I/O lines, and a practical approach to thermal and cable management while being cost competitive.
