Learn how open-hardware provides the freedom to choose

Equus Compute Solutions (http://www.equuscs.com) announced that David Arndt, Director, Virtualization Solutions will be presenting an Intel Tech Talk at the VMworld 2018 show in Las Vegas, NV on Wednesday, August 29th from 12:00 – 12:30 pm in the Intel booth #1212. Arndt’s Tech Talk topic is titled “Open-Hardware Platforms for Cost-Optimized Data Centers.” The presentation will describe how to use Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPU-based open-hardware servers and storage platforms to optimize costs in data center and hyper-converged infrastructures.

VMworld attendees will learn how to customize open-hardware platforms for high-performing VMware virtualization solutions, V-sphere hybrid cloud workloads, and cost-effective vSAN software defined data center configurations. Open-hardware servers provide new levels of security and control using OpenBMC and LinuxBoot. These servers utilize OCP slots that support multivendor cards including Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapters and SSD/NVMe storage modules. OCP networking supports NC-SI based in-band network management that reduces costs, cabling, complexity, and separate Ethernet switches. Leveraging the open-hardware experience of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, and other “big guys”, organizations of all sizes can now use these platforms to meet their exact requirements while optimizing their spend.
