A decade of open computing

Article | July 27, 2021

The third Annual OCP China Day, organized by the Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation and hosted by Inspur, will be held on July 27, 2021 in Beijing. It marks another step in the right direction to popularizing open computing across the globe. This year is the tenth anniversary of the open compute project and the theme of OCP China Day is “Open compute for a new decade: Decarbonization, Efficiency, Adoption”. Omdia has tracked the open computing market in detail for 5 years and over that period we have seen the end-user base expand and adoption take off. We expect 40% of the servers shipped in 2025 to be developed based on open standard, up from 7% in 2016. This is a very significant number, partularly given that our forecast takes into account large scale adoption at only two or three of the hyperscale cloud service providers. Most of the net new deployments are expected to be at tier-2 cloud, communication service providers and enterprises, including the public or government sector.

Accelerating the Evaluation and Deployment of uCPE-Based SD-WAN Solutions

Article | July 27, 2021

Unless you’ve been living on an Internet-free desert island for the past couple of years, it’s been hard to escape all the industry hype around Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN). While the business benefits of adopting SD-WAN are significant, there’s no denying the fact that evaluating and then deploying potential solutions is hard: typically, the solutions that deliver the best Return on Investment (ROI) involve products from multiple vendors, leading to complex integration and testing. A recently-announced software evaluation kit addresses these challenges, providing a pre-integrated open-source SD-WAN solution that runs on multiple white-box hardware platforms, all ready for a quick, efficient start to putting together a multi-vendor SD-WAN deployment.

Why the coronavirus response may unleash 5G

Article | July 27, 2021

Before the COVID-19 crisis, the biggest news in tech was the ongoing -- and controversial -- rollout of the 5G network. First, there was the ban on Chinese companies, prohibiting them from being involved with 5G infrastructure in the U.S., U.K. and Australia. Then articles started pointing out that the threat profile for 5G was an order of magnitude higher than that of existing telecom protocols. The coronavirus outbreak, though, has forced some analysts to reassess the value of 5G. While security concerns remain, the network has been invaluable in the fight against the pandemic.
