OCP Announces Strategic Partnership with DatacenterDynamics

Tuesday, August 01, 2017 · Posted by at 1:41 AM

As part of our mission to enable innovation and adoption of open hardware and software, OCP will again be collocating OCP Engineering Workshops at three of this year’s global DatacenterDynamics Converged events.

DatacenterDynamics is a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT-dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions. DCD brands are centered on the complexities of technology convergence in the datacenter.

We will be working with DCD at the following events:

1. DCD>Colo+Cloud (September 26, Fairmont Dallas; OCP Engineering Workshop, 25 September)

The third of DCD’s vertically-focused US events following from DCD>Webscale (San Francisco) and DCD>Enterprise (New York). The one-day conference program focuses on the needs of datacenter service providers to include colocation companies, cloud providers and telcos.

This is DCD’s flagship event, which has been running for 16 years. We will be holding the European OCP Engineering Workshop’s throughout the second day, on November 8. This will be the main European OCP event of the year with hundreds of OC-interested parties attending from throughout Europe. This event last year was supported by a number of OCP members and we would love to see more attend this year.

3. DCD>Canada 4.0 (14 December, Metro Toronto Convention Centre; OCP Engineering Workshop, 13 December)

The aim of OCP working with DCD as part of their Canadian event is to bring OCP concepts to the Canadian Market. The workshop will be held the afternoon before the event and will attract some of the larger datacenter consumers in Canada.

We have been working with DCD for some time now and see this relationship as a key way of extending the global reach of the OCP and driving adoption within the datacenter community. As such we would really encourage our members to get involved in some capacity at one or more of these events.
