Event Summary: DENT at 2024 OCP Regional Summit

By May 9, 2024Announcements, Blog

The Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation is a growing, global community whose mission is to design, use and enable mainstream delivery of the most efficient designs for scalable computing. OCP is rooted in the belief that openly sharing ideas, specifications and other intellectual property is the key to maximizing innovation and reducing complexity in tech components, a belief shared by DENT.

DENT participated as an Open Source Partner at the 2024 OCP Regional Summit held in Lisbon, Portugal between April 24-25. The Summit served as a platform where technical and business leaders from EMEA united to address critical issues related to data center sustainability, energy efficiency and heat reuse. 

OCP’s annual regional summit explores how innovations from hyperscale data center operators can contribute to solving these challenges. The annual summit also showcases deployments of specific OCP-recognized data center equipment in the EMEA region. 

The key areas of emphasis for 2024 included Data Center Sustainability, AI, Security and Data Protection, Power and Cooling, and Deployments. Additionally, participants learned how innovations within the OCP Community are pivotal in developing and implementing a sustainable and scalable computational infrastructure for the future.

DENT representatives from Amazon and Luxoft volunteered at the DENT booth, interacting with attendees and diving into DENT’s ethos and use cases. 

DENT’s presence grew project awareness and educated attendees on DENT’s role in the open source community, promoting DENT as a network operating system, control plane and management plane. 

In total, there were 725 attendees, 41 sponsors and 25 Expo Hall booths from 315 organizations and 33 countries at the event, providing a great opportunity to introduce DENT to a new audience. 

DENT sincerely thanks those who attended the 2024 OCP Regional Summit in Lisbon. DENT looks forward to the 2024 OCP Global Summit held in San Jose, CA from October 15–17.
