[OCP] IC nominations to represent Security Project (Andres Lagar-Cavilla)

Siamak Tavallaei <tavallaei@...>

Greetings OCP colleagues,

OCP IC nominations are in, and I would like to ask for your endorsement and vote for my colleague, Dr. Andres Lagar-Cavilla, as the Security Project representative on the Incubation Committee.

During the May Server Project call, we presented the attached concept for a Datacenter-ready Integrated System (DC-Stack).  It is based on the earlier contribution of the Datacenter-ready Secure Control Module (DC-SCM) to the Hardware Management Project.  

Andres is a founding member of the overall concept for such an integrated hardware and software system to serve various enterprise, edge, and hyperscale datacenters.  As a security and software expert, his contributions to the open-source community also include OCP Security Project and Open System Firmware Project.

I invite you to reach out to the OCP voting member of your company and elect Anders to represent the Security Project at the Incubation Committee so that we may collectively continue to move a holistic integrated system forward with your help. 

Yours in Open-source Community,
Siamak Tavallaei
Chief Systems Architect, Google Systems Infrastructure
Director, CXL Consortium
