The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP), is a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology to efficiently support the growing demands on compute infrastructure. Their mission, to apply the benefits of open-source collaboration to hardware and increase innovation, breaks away from the idea of proprietary IT infrastructure and enables greater choice, customisation, and cost savings.
This month, Steve Helvie, VP of Channel Development at the OCP, interviewed Barry McGinley, Senior Technical Engineer at EPS Global, as part of the OCP's Solution Provider Spotlight series. Covering one man's journey into Open Networking via Dublin, New York and Glasgow, along with an astute commentary on the state of the industry, it is well worth a listen.
"Flexibility, choice, lower Capex and Opex, Linux... just a few of the benefits when moving to open networking. This week we speak with EPS Global who specialise in open networking and who are committed to helping their customers through the open networking journey. Barry is a wealth of knowledge and has a great way of explaining the challenges and opportunities facing enterprises when moving toward open networking as well as the impact of the recent market consolidation. One of the best experts in EMEA on open networking with a lot of insight". - Steve Helvie, OCP
