July 21 2021: Data Center Facility - OCP Project Call
(Bret/Madhu) DCF organization updates (20 min)
Discussion on goals
Discussion on program management
DCF charter: Original intent and coverage, current status, new areas to be included
DCF Team Comments
OCP Ready - Traditional IT, we have focused on Colos, review the term, look at Enterprise Data Center, broaden the use case.
In scoping there is DC Monitoring & Control - Create a workstream in this area, and the community would be interested - Would fit into the Security Workstream.
Redfish - Could it help to measure Carbon Emissions and potentially part of a Sustainability work stream. Redfish is an interface used to build an API.
Helps to capture both the history of the charter with present work.
North Star can be “Enablement of OCP Hardware” and tie back to it.
Redfish can be part of OTS discussion.
1-2 years look ahead is challenging for sub-projects, looking ~2-3 quarters is easier to do, especially true from a technology standpoint and guidelines
Track updates (20 min)
(Mark) 2 year Roadmap for OCP Ready Track
Rob Coyle has been appointed co-lead for the OCP Ready™ Facility Recognition Program
SpaceDC - JAK2 data center 12-month self- review has been completed and reviewed, and the facility continues to meet the OCP Ready requirements.
3rd quarter goal progress
(Don/John) Update on Advanced Cooling Facilities
(Joey/Jon) Update on Security - DCW OTS
Three current work streams progressing well
Physical Security – specification on how to secure a data center from a holistic standpoint, strategic partnership with ASIS in development
Logging and Monitoring – specification on what signals we need from various device types and how to tag them for security concerns in development
Network Comms – Requirements identified, reached out to potential partners with current protocols that meet our needs
One proposed work stream too look at the software stack in the place and see if there is potential for open source software to address
Represented the project at Data Center World UK in July and Data Center World Orlando in August
(Bob) Modular DC (offline)
Continuing to work on the OCP Ready Guidelines for Deploying Modular Data Centers
Are holding a separate meeting each month that focuses solely on developing the guideline
Have created a basic outline that is being used as the development plan.
Scott Neal is working on a draft of the Electrical section.
Bob Oliver is working on a comparison of benefits of MDC vs. Traditional Data Centers
Don Mitchell (along with Bernie Malouin and Karl Rabe) is working on a draft of the Cooling section
Started work on a MDC Checklist to compare advantages and disadvantages of a purpose-built DC vs. MDC. This is being led by Rob Coyle
3 Month / 6 Month / 12 Month Goals
3 Month: MDC Checklist
Discussion - OCP Abstract submissions from DCF
ACF - 2 abstracts
“OCP guidance on standardized methods of connecting of liquid cooled IT to cooling loops”.
“OCP Guidance, Reference Designs – Adding Liquid Cooling loops to Data Centers”.
Other DCF Tracks
Planned OCP Submissions - Rack & Power - Advanced Cooling Systems
Redfish for Infrastructure Systems, Jeff Auter, HP (Co-chair, OCP Redfish Forum)
Systems management specification
Redfish is http based restful interface
DMTF is a 30 year old stds org (IT & Systems Management)
Alliance between OCP and DMTF
Clear demarcation between OEM specific and std
Conceived around for 6 years, broad adoption on server side, has been shipping for 4-5 years in servers
Data model incorporates data center started to be developed 2 years ago started with Rack PDU
Models developed/under dev
Electrical busses (facility and rack level)
Coolant Distribution Units (Just started)
Cabling database and model.
Interaction with Programmable Logic Control (PLC)
Redfish is end user interface above the components/systems
Focus on web gui and human interaction
Implementation details at the data extraction level are abstracted out.
