Wiwynn Corporation announced to provide a fully configured OCP (Open Compute Project) rack in Disaggregate Lab, a lab space in Facebook, Inc.'s Menlo Park, CA, HQs for vendors to test their infrastructure software and potential adopters to test their workloads on open hardware.
Data center providers can preview the capabilities of OCP equipment and the software compatibility before investing in new hardware. The company believes this will help to speed up the adoption of OCP hardware by lowering entry barrier.
Company's 41U rack provides complete computing, storage and networking features. Users will be able to run their test remotely via the internet without geographical limitation. With support from Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., Seagate Technology plc and Toshiba Corporation , potential open hardware adopters can validate their software on the firm's solutions:
Leopard Broadwell (SV7221G2-Vh) - 2U dual-socket servers,
Knox (ST7110G2) - high density 12Gb SAS JBODs,
Lightning (ST7200) - 2U All-Flash NVMe JBOFs, and LN10040-28x40GbE + 12x100GbE data center switches.
All these hardware resources are able to be modularized to fulfill varied applications, including virtualization, big data and high computing applications. With the flexibility, the rack resources can also be used efficiently by running different applications in the same time. Furthermore, the company will provide technical support and be able to customize configuration by request.
"As the OCP solution provider, Wiwynn is committed to providing data centers with workload optimization and power efficiency with open hardware," said Emily Hong, president, Wiwynn, "It's our pleasure to support the Disaggregate Lab with our partners-Mellanox, Seagate and Toshiba, by contributing a fully configured Open Rack to the lab and accelerating the adoption of open hardware."
