Inspur Accelerates Enterprise Adoption of Fully-Integrated Open Computing Platforms and AI Innovations at OCP Global Summit 2021

Inspur Information meets growing enterprise needs for AI and high-performance computing for complex workloads including real-time analytics, data consolidation and more

Posted to Businesswire

SAN JOSE, Calif., November 9, 2021 – Inspur Information, a leading provider of data center infrastructure, cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, is championing the “Open Possibilities” theme of the 2021 OCP Global Summit, by empowering small- and medium-sized enterprises through hyperscale-type technologies, originally designed only for the largest data centers, and providing a path to open compute infrastructure.

Alan Chang, Vice President of Technical Operations for Inspur Information, will discuss the rapidly increasing enterprise-level adoption of high-performance computing and AI solutions driven by automation of complex business processes. With energy consumption soaring, he will also share how the latest innovations in computing power can help reduce a company’s carbon footprint during his “General Enterprise Server – Growing OCP Adoption” presentation on Tuesday, November 9 at 1:50pm-2:05pm PT at the OCP Global Summit being held at the San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, California.

During the two-day event, Inspur Information will showcase its groundbreaking NF5180M6 and NF5280M6 General Purpose Enterprise Servers, powered by 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, to meet the needs of businesses in all industries for open standards at-scale servers in an enterprise level 1U/2U box. The flexible, high-performance and energy efficient servers are being deployed for virtualization, driving large business applications, running transactional databases and more.

Inspur Information’s new 1OU OCP design will also be demonstrated at the event, which combines the best of ODCC and OCP building blocks to create a reliable mainstream design that can be offered as an alternative to the Facebook design. Inspur Information has been involved in the three major open computing organization – OCP, Open Data Center Committee (ODCC) and Open 19 – demonstrating the company’s commitment to taking the lead in advancing the commercialization of open technology.

Collaborating with OCP community partners is important to accelerate open compute adoption. Inspur Information is proud to launch, jointly with Samsung, the Poseidon V2 E3.x reference system which adopted composable architecture to maximize the benefits of EDSFF E3.x form factor.  Poseidon V2 system can accommodate not only the PCIe Gen5 SSDs but also various devices like AI/ML accelerators or CXL Memory Expanders.  Data center users can configure the system according to application’s needs.

In addition, Inspur Information continues to invest in the leading AI and HPC use case by OAI design, working with a major cloud service provider to provide input on the architecture. The OAI specification—led by Facebook and Intel in the OCP community—unifies the technical specifications of the accelerator module and simplifies the design complexity of the AI accelerator system, thereby shortening time to market for the hardware system.

“More customers are starting to adopt some form of OCP from a NIC card to a fully integrated rack solution and everything in between,” said Chang. “We are breaking down barriers to entry for enterprises. Our focus is a higher adoption rate. By working together as a community, businesses will benefit from this standardized approach that delivers the very best OCP solutions to meet their needs, and having a choice of vendors to buy from.”

As an OCP Platinum Member and OCP Solution Provider, Inspur Information leverages decades of experience in hardware design to deliver new open architectures. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the Open Compute Project earlier this year, Inspur joined forces with Omdia, a world-renowned market research organization, to release the Open Computing White Paper. According to the paper, open compute is a brand-new industrial collaboration mode that is most often deployed through three major open compute organizations – OCP, ODCC and Open19 – where participants can share products, specifications and the intellectual property of IT infrastructure, to speed the adoption of innovative data center technologies.

Already, telecommunications, financial services, gaming, e-commerce, medical, automotive, manufacturing and other industries are looking to deploy IT infrastructure in line with open compute standards. As Omdia predicts, non-internet industries will make up 21.9% of the market by 2025, compared with 10.5% in 2020.
