At its first annual OCP Regional Summit in Amsterdam, the Netherlands being held 1 – 2 October 2018, the Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) has announced that Huawei is the fifth member from China to join the Open Compute Project. Huawei joins OCP as a Platinum member.
The Open Compute Project (OCP) was initiated by Facebook in 2011 with a mission to apply “the benefits” of open source to hardware and rapidly increase the pace of innovation in, near and around the data center and beyond. Since then, OCP stimulated open source contributions for networking, servers, storage and Open Rack.
Huawei’s ICT solutions, products, and services are used in more than 170 countries and regions, serving over one-third of the world’s population by more than 170,000 employees.
“The ever growing application of cloud computing, big data and artificial intelligence increases the demand for computing resources in the data center and edge computing scenarios,” said Qiu Long, President of Huawei’s Intelligent Computing Product Line. “As a result, traditional compute architecture faces increasing deployment, management and energy efficiency challenges. Huawei’s intelligent computing products, which incorporate Huawei’s chip, acceleration components and intelligent management, together with innovative optimized system design, can deliver end-to-end solutions which significantly improves the rollout and operation efficiency of data centers and edge computing architectures. These products can accommodate multiple data center deployment scenarios for a single node and/or cabinet deployment.”
Huawei is a Bronze Sponsor of the first annual OCP Regional Summit in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Huawei is also a Platinum sponsor of the annual OCP Global Summit that will be held 14 – 15 March, 2019 in San Jose, CA – an event drawing more than 3,500 technology leaders and innovators from across the globe.

“Huawei becomes the 5th company from China to join the Open Compute Project,” said Bill Carter, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for the Open Compute Project Foundation. “Being a leading provider in China’s domestic market, Huawei will play an important role in the adoption of open and efficient cloud hardware around the globe, and can help us build a collaborative community across China.”
