Open Compute Project becoming ‘de facto’ data center standard

Ericsson has partnered with players Quanta data center and Amazon Web Services to expand the scope of its product HDS 8000; telecommunications equipment supplier also has joined the Open Compute Project, which provides a framework for collaboration in research and development in data center hardware.

Ericsson launched its Cloud Drive and IP business last year with Hyperscale system data center.

Anders Lindblad, Head Business Unit Ericsson Cloud & IP, said the goal is to "disrupt in space in the data center," adding the HDS8000 "really has been proven to work. We have a huge, too, customer feedback, including "FarEasTone, Millicom and SKT.

"We have to be very competitive costs," Lindblad said. "We should be able to adapt in a great way to be able to be relevant in the data center infrastructure."

The partnership with Taiwanese hardware manufacturer Quanta is designed to help scale Ericsson design, development and manufacture of its products for data centers.

Mike Yang, vice president and general manager of Quanta, said, "Ericsson has a proven record of delivery, both the technology and services needed to scale successful track record. They built one of the largest distributed infrastructure in the world with a global reach more than 180 countries. Together we bring open and flexible solutions and proven in the market through the platform 8000 and the rules of open Compute "HDS.

The Open Compute Project is a nonprofit organization founded in 2011 to design server image reconstruction, storage and other data center hardware in order to boost the evolutionary computation through the exchange of information and technical specifications.

"We believe that openly share ideas, specifications and other intellectual property is the key to maximizing innovation and reduce operational complexity in the space of evolutionary computing," the organization said. "The project Open Compute Foundation provides a structure in which individuals and organizations can share their intellectual property."

With Amazon Web Services, Ericsson is working to bring the experience of this company in the data center market service providers.

Terry Wise, AWS VP Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, said the association would "implement innovation centers", the first is underway with Telstra in Australia.
