Challenging Public Cloud Economics

Anthony Johnson, Senior Consultant, Flipside Partners Chris Yetman, COO, Vantage Data Centers Conor Malone, VP Engineering, Hyve Solutions

The cost-per-mW in the delivery of hybrid cloud capacity, by applying open-source  principles in the design, build and delivery of data centers, can reach a point to challenge the per-mW costs that public cloud providers are achieving. This panel discusses how that’s possible.

The Need for Speed: FPGAs in the Data Center

John Lockwood, CEO, Algo-Logic Mike Strickland, Director, Strategic/Tech. Mktg., Altera

Programmable hardware enables operators of datacenters to scale up the performance of critical networking services.  In addition to deployment of additional CPU cores, operators are now also deploying Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) logic to lower latency, improve throughput, and decrease the energy required to operate their datacenters.  In this session, we see real applications in 10G to 100G networks where Gateware Defined Networking (GDN) solutions achieve 20x improvements.
