4 Key Takeaways from the OCP Regional Summit

4 Key Takeaways from the OCP Regional Summit

The OCP’s 3rd regional summit in Amsterdam’s RAI centre was a resounding success by every measure.  Attendance increased by 9% to 700 visitors, with those visitors hailing from 38 different countries. There were executive talks, engineering workshops, case studies, project working groups and new product announcements from the likes of Inspur and Wiwynn. While videos and slides for all these sessions are available on the OCP’s  website nothing can really replicate attending to get a feel for the way the OCP and industry is shifting, and the shift was noticeable.

The Open Compute Project Part 1

The Open Compute Project Part 1

The OCP’s third regional summit took place on the 26th and 27th of September in Amsterdam. I was in attendance as EPS Global’s representative for the second time (I was on my best behaviour, honest). Over the next 2 blogs I will share some of the new technologies that were on show from the biggest names in the hardware world. In part 1 though, I will give an overview of the OCP, where, when and why they began, the ethos within and where it is heading. Part 2 will be dedicated to the new technologies that aim to solve the ever-increasing challenges within cloud computing and more. With members including Facebook, Google, IBM, Rackspace, Nokia, Microsoft, Alibaba Group and Cisco to name but a few, all working in collaboration, the Open Compute Project looks capable of rising to these challenges.

Containers, Docker and Kubernetes: A beginner's guide Part 2

Containers, Docker and Kubernetes: A beginner's guide Part 2

Kubernetes is all about sharing machines between the applications, so understanding how they communicate is essential. The first important element to understand is that every Pod gets its own IP address. This means you do not have to create links between the Pods and also negates the need to map host ports to container ports, as is done in the Docker networking model. Pods can now be treated very similarly to VMs or physical hosts with respect to naming, port allocation, load balancing, migration and more. Read article

Wi-Fi - The Cause of and Solution to All of Life’s Problems Part II

Billy Connolly, the Scottish comedian, laughing at his father for losing his glasses again jokingly told him about an article he had read for a prescription car windscreen. His father thought this would be the greatest thing since sliced bread and wanted one immediately. Now, imagine the vision as this vehicle approaches and a man with a head the size of a small asteroid is looking at you. Or the confusion of a new owner as he drove off into a lamppost!! My point is we have to careful when looking at things we are told will change our lives for the better. We have all heard the buzz around 5G so let’s have a look and see if it’s a prescription windscreen or our generation’s sliced bread.

Containers, Docker and Kubernetes: A Beginner's Guide

Containers, Docker and Kubernetes: A Beginner's Guide

Container platforms and Cloud Native are the talk of the town, with Kubernetes, or k8s as it is stylized, recently being crowned the victor in the bloody but aptly named ‘Container Wars’. The white flag of surrender for management and orchestration was raised by Docker which now supports Kubernetes natively. Docker is still the container engine of choice though. This means that most Cloud Native systems are going to contain both platforms in a complementary fashion.

Wi-Fi  - The cause of and solution to all of life’s problems 

I can clearly remember the day I lost complete perspective concerning my love of all things Wi-Fi. I was in the sitting room with my wife (who is a nurse) and I was explaining to her about a technique to increase data rates called Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM). To begin with she looked at me wide eyed in expectation at being wowed, very briefly, by yet another awesome technological advance.  15 minutes later she was literally snoring. The sad part was I kept on going.  Read article
