ABOUT THE EVENT

OCP is excited to announce our next virtual event, OCP TECH WEEK, planned for the week of November 9.

Join us for four days packed with Engineering Workshops held during various time zones to allow for global participation. These will not be your typical lecture presentations, but live sessions - allowing plenty of time for interactive collaboration! Given the great momentum and response from our Virtual Summit in May, OCP is providing this virtual forum to share the following with you:

  • A look back at our 2019/2020 Key Accomplishments and Strategic Actions
  • A sneak peak at our 2021 Technology Initiatives (from our Community’s perspective) and how OCP will address
    these future trends
  • Announcements on new Contributions Requirements and changes to Recognition Programs for Facilities/Products
  • High level snapshot of all the current active OCP Projects
  • Technical deep dives and plenty of time for interactive discussions on current Project activity

    • These sessions are not meant to be introductory in nature but progressive
    • Our volunteer leaders and key contributors are looking for feedback and will be facilitating real-time decisions
      during the sessions
    • Emphasis is on cross collaboration across projects and other industry organizations.

What can you do in the meantime to prepare??

  • Catch up on your Project happenings by checking out the on-demand content of our Virtual Summit.
  • Become an OCP Member and check out which OCP Project or Sub-Project interests you!
  • Subscribe to one or more OCP mailing lists to get regular updates on agenda topics!
  • Attend a few Project Calls between now and November to discover what progess has been made.
  • Come prepared to engage in meaningful discussions!

OCP new incubation Sub-Project: Advanced Cooling Facilities is launched!!

Archna Haylock
 

OCP is launching a new incubation Sub-Project under our Data Center Facilities Project! The Advanced Cooling Facilities (ACF) Sub-Project will be collaborating on the integration of Advanced Cooling Solutions (ACS) into Data Center Facilities (DCF) via liquid distribution.  Participants of the ACF Sub-Project community will endeavor to develop solutions, seek guidance and create reference designs that enable ACS deployment in both new and existing data centers, with a special focus on OCP Ready™ data centers. 

Primary interests in the Advanced Cooling Facilities Sub-Project community include:

  • Minimizing risk, time and operational impact related to installation of ACS liquid solutions
  • Collaborating on and simplifying guidance for scalability of liquid cooled ACS solutions over the life of the data center 
  • Optimizing energy efficiency and reuse potential of data centers via liquid cooled ACS solutions

To get involved: 

1) Please become an OCP member and join the ACF Mailing List

2) Get familiar with the details on the Sub-Project on the ACF Wiki

3) Participate in our first call on Aug 4th at 8am PT/11am ET. Check our Project Calendar for more info. Call Info and agenda will be published via the mailing list reflector.

All,
You are invited to attend the very first meeting of the OCP TAP Community! Details below!!

What is TAP?
Time is a key element to get the highest efficiency in a distributed system. The performance of a distributed system depends on the synchronization of its elements. Several industries such as telecom, mobile, power, industrial, professional audio and video and many more have embraced the need for highly accurate and more importantly reliable distribution and synchronization of time and frequency across packet networks. Although the use case scenario for each of the industries is different, they all share one common thing and that is, time synchronization. Since there is a diverse need for time synchronization across different industries, driven from different use cases and applications, managing the needs of this industry chain becomes a challenge.

Time Appliances Project (TAP) aims to provide a platform to bring together, discuss, standardize and share technologies and solutions across industries with the datacenter applications and datacenter network infrastructure as the main interest. The project aims to bring together the community of datacenter operators, application developers, and equipment and semiconductor companies together to enable datacenter time-sensitive applications such as consistency in distributed systems, edge computing, AR/VR and IoT. These applications will greatly benefit from high accuracy, reliable, and scalable distribution and synchronization of time.

IEEE 1588 Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) and other synchronization methods have been adopted by various industries to maximize the efficiency of various distributed system use cases. Each use case scenario comes with a set of requirements and configurations. These configurations are collected as a ‘PTP profile’. Time appliances project aims to support the development of a PTP profile for datacenter applications and datacenter network infrastructure. The profile will cover time-sensitive applications over OCP-compliant and PTP-aware networking infrastructure such as network switches, network clocks, network interface cards, timing modules & connectors, etc. Additionally, the profile will address various requirements for high accuracy and reliable distribution and synchronization of time, such as expected performance, networking, software API, data models, deployment and telemetry. The project also aims at openness and interoperability through the use of open-source PTP software implementations for timing appliances.

Datacenter applications are the primary target of time appliances project. In addition, the project extends to related topics on time synchronization in academia, research and other industries. The time appliances project brings together the community and will be highly collaborative through technical meetings and collaboration with other OCP Projects including the Networking, Storage, Server, and Telco Projects.

Hi Peter,

 

I think you mean the Distributed Disaggregated Core, right?  I don’t want to assume that is the only DDC….but if that is the right one that the Telco group has that.

OCP’s Project community is run by volunteers and we are always grateful to those that have spent their valuable time and energy to make our community a success.  Some of these Project Leaderships have grown a small incubation concept to solutions that involve multiple work streams and have garnered support from multiple companies.  Some have grown their community from a few engineers to hundreds of engineers on one call. This type of collaboration requires months of effort and patience but also a passion for teamwork and open solutions. We want to thank all those that have helped OCP become the go-to place for collaboration and open hardware/embedded software solutions. We appreciate all those leaders that are moving on to different roles and sincerely hope that our paths will cross again.

 

For the first time in the history of OCP, we are very excited to announce that there will be no elections for our Project Leads. We sent out a "Call for Nominations" for candidates on June 12th. What followed over the course of the past two weeks has been a stunning display for collaboration and teamwork.  Here are our Volunteer Leaders for Project and SubProjects - all running uncontested by unanimous demand. Please join me in welcoming and congratulating this amazing team of volunteers at OCP! These are effective Aug 1st after a brief transition period.

 

If there are any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Hello Kevin, Steve, Steve, Jens , Noel

 

This is a really good discussion and it would be great if you would all consider (and any others in the OCP community) to join us and collaborate in the data center facility project on this subject.  We have two workstreams ACS Harmonization and the revision of the ‘Colo Facility Guidelines for the Deployment of OCP Racks’ where we’re intending to create and publish guidelines for heat recovery heat re-use.

 

If you’re not already on the DCF mailing list please join here https://ocp-all.groups.io/g/OCP-DCF

 

Also during our next DCF project call on June 17th we’ll be discussing the progress of both of these workstreams.

Dr Struckmeier – Quick scan of WP looks very informative.  Appears you have data addressing

  • performance/efficiency vs chip temperature
  • Energy losses associated with seeking to capture waste energy
  • Balancing Energy reuse across a 7x24 usage

 

Would be very interested in

  • summary of EMEA (and global) programs incentivizing  energy reuse (by mandate or incentive)
  • Recommendations on energy reuse metrics

Don and Steve very good points,

Heat recovery and sustainablity is our focus since I founded Cloud&Heat in 2011. We have 19 locations with servers with heat recovery, most of them for heating purposes of adjacent buildings. The original idea was that this makes particular sense for decentralized edge data centers in urban areas and cities.

We found that the key is to achive high temperatures in water of 60°C (140F) and beyond to get the transistion from waste head to a valuable resource. This requires quite careful heat exchanger design and flow rate control.

However we also found that the optimum temperature for chips and CPU largly varies on the internal structure and semiconductor properties like leakage current vs. low voltage operation.

One of our anchor projects is a datacenter in the heart of the financial district of the city of Frankfurt. We completely refurbished the former European Central Bank data center into a complete water cooled data center providing warm water to the skyscraper heating infrastructure. If you are interested in more technical information and energy savings you might check out our white paper:

Subject: Re: [OCP-All] Data Center Heat Recovery

 

The NREL data center is very efficient. However, when looking at heat recovery, you have to balance the extra power required at higher CPU temperature with the cost of efficient heat pumps. (a one to one comparison of watts of heat to watts of computer power is not appropriate) A hotter running processor may require 5% more power and a typical heat pump has a COP of 4.

This means that if you run your 100 watt processor hotter so it uses 105 watts to get usable heat, and the heat your are replacing requires 25 watts of power to produce 100 watts of heat, the 20 watt power savings for a 100 watts of heat may not justify the expense of hooking the computer to the heating system.

Also, once you hook up a heat source that you can't control to a heating system, you need to have a backup source of heat.

I don't think it makes sense for San Diego, but it might for a place where heat is expensive and the computers are running at full load all of the time.

Jens,

I generally agree with the conclusions Cloud&Heat reached in its white paper on heat recovery, but why use a cold plate when rack-based single-phase immersion is more cost effective and energy efficient?  NREL studied LiquidCool Solutions technology for two years and concluded that it is the Gold Standard for cooling data centers.

This means that if you run your 100 watt processor hotter so it uses 105 watts to get usable heat, and the heat your are replacing requires 25 watts of power to produce 100 watts of heat, the 20 watt power savings for a 100 watts of heat may not justify the expense of hooking the computer to the heating system.

Also, once you hook up a heat source that you can't control to a heating system, you need to have a backup source of heat.

I don't think it makes sense for San Diego, but it might for a place where heat is expensive and the computers are running at full load all of the time.

Hi

I am interested to find out if there is any work in OCP projects that is related to using Air-cooled data center or liquid cooled data center hall expelled heat for thermal utilities in surrounding buildings? Also if there is any direct/indirect evaporative media work being done as well.

Thanks,

Hello Kevin, Steve, Steve, Jens , Noel

 

This is a really good discussion and it would be great if you would all consider (and any others in the OCP community) to join us and collaborate in the data center facility project on this subject.  We have two workstreams ACS Harmonization and the revision of the ‘Colo Facility Guidelines for the Deployment of OCP Racks’ where we’re intending to create and publish guidelines for heat recovery heat re-use.

 

If you’re not already on the DCF mailing list please join here https://ocp-all.groups.io/g/OCP-DCF

 

Also during our next DCF project call on June 17th we’ll be discussing the progress of both of these workstreams.

 

 

 

Kind regards,

Don and Steve very good points,

Heat recovery and sustainablity is our focus since I founded Cloud&Heat in 2011. We have 19 locations with servers with heat recovery, most of them for heating purposes of adjacent buildings. The original idea was that this makes particular sense for decentralized edge data centers in urban areas and cities.

We found that the key is to achive high temperatures in water of 60°C (140F) and beyond to get the transistion from waste head to a valuable resource. This requires quite careful heat exchanger design and flow rate control.

However we also found that the optimum temperature for chips and CPU largly varies on the internal structure and semiconductor properties like leakage current vs. low voltage operation.

One of our anchor projects is a datacenter in the heart of the financial district of the city of Frankfurt. We completely refurbished the former European Central Bank data center into a complete water cooled data center providing warm water to the skyscraper heating infrastructure. If you are interested in more technical information and energy savings you might check out our white paper:

https://www.cloudandheat.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/2020_CloudHeat-Whitepaper-Cost-saving-Potential.pdf

Looking forward towards further discussions,

Hello Steve,

Great to be connecting with you. 

I like to introduce you to Ed Trice. He is the brains behind this technology. Ed Trice CEO of Nuclear  Lightning  Enterprises https://nuclearlightning.com/server_06.shtml

builds the fastest Servers and Workstations on the planet.  He can back up this claim against any computer out there.

 

To test the speed yourself you’re going to have to go to www.teamviewer.com and down load the free program.  This is what we use to run the comparative speed and power testing.

   

To see pictures, from the CAD drawing to the final result go to this blog. https://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/796606-PROJECT-LOG-3-stage-Thermosyphon-vastly-outperforms-quadruple-radiators

 

 I am "Doctor Emmett Brown" in this discussion board.

 

We can custom build liquid cooled computer from the ground up. Hyperscale or edge technology. The 8-core Intel i9-9900KS chip is overclocked to 5.2 GHz.  

 

This is the most advanced liquid cooling tech with the 8-core Intel i9-9900KS chip that can be overclocked to 5.2 GHz.  After doing a remote test I saw that the other liquid cooling tech could not compete with his thermosyphon technology.  

 

I don't just provide capital for companies. I started the Cloud9 Capital Consulting so that I can fund the orders from clients of my liquid cooled edge and hyperscale computers we build. It’s actually a marriage of Technology and funding.

 

The pumpless thermosyphon technology is capable of cooling entire 72U server racks running at overclocked speeds 24x7. We are capable of running chips faster and cooler than quad-radiator liquid cooled solutions because we offer 3-stage (air, water, refrigerant vapor) dual phase (liquid refrigerant that vaporizes A custom built liquid cooled computer from the ground up. Hyperscale or edge technology.

 

The 8-core Intel i9-9900KS chip is overclocked to 5.2 GHz. If you need power and speed more than anything else, this is definitely the place to be. The engineer who developed this is one of the brightest stars in the technology universe. If you have any funding needs feel free to reach out to me. I can fund any company that has good revenue and EBITDA

The O-RAN Alliance created workgroup #7 (WG7) to define white box hardware for the radio access network.   We do not have a formal relationship with O-RAN WG7 yet, but we do have many overlapping members.   The final WG7 spec was authored by Nokia and ATT and both lead within the OCP Edge project.  Hope this helps.

Re: Data Center Heat Recovery

Jens Struckmeier
 

Don and Steve very good points,

Heat recovery and sustainablity is our focus since I founded Cloud&Heat in 2011. We have 19 locations with servers with heat recovery, most of them for heating purposes of adjacent buildings. The original idea was that this makes particular sense for decentralized edge data centers in urban areas and cities.

We found that the key is to achive high temperatures in water of 60°C (140F) and beyond to get the transistion from waste head to a valuable resource. This requires quite careful heat exchanger design and flow rate control.

However we also found that the optimum temperature for chips and CPU largly varies on the internal structure and semiconductor properties like leakage current vs. low voltage operation.

One of our anchor projects is a datacenter in the heart of the financial district of the city of Frankfurt. We completely refurbished the former European Central Bank data center into a complete water cooled data center providing warm water to the skyscraper heating infrastructure. If you are interested in more technical information and energy savings you might check out our white paper:

Looking forward towards further discussions,

Jens

Hello Steve,

Great to be connecting with you. 

I like to introduce you to Ed Trice. He is the brains behind this technology. Ed Trice CEO of Nuclear  Lightning  Enterprises https://nuclearlightning.com/server_06.shtml

builds the fastest Servers and Workstations on the planet.  He can back up this claim against any computer out there.

 

To test the speed yourself you’re going to have to go to www.teamviewer.com and down load the free program.  This is what we use to run the comparative speed and power testing.

   

To see pictures, from the CAD drawing to the final result go to this blog. https://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/796606-PROJECT-LOG-3-stage-Thermosyphon-vastly-outperforms-quadruple-radiators

 

 I am "Doctor Emmett Brown" in this discussion board.

 

We can custom build liquid cooled computer from the ground up. Hyperscale or edge technology. The 8-core Intel i9-9900KS chip is overclocked to 5.2 GHz.  

 

This is the most advanced liquid cooling tech with the 8-core Intel i9-9900KS chip that can be overclocked to 5.2 GHz.  After doing a remote test I saw that the other liquid cooling tech could not compete with his thermosyphon technology.  

 

I don't just provide capital for companies. I started the Cloud9 Capital Consulting so that I can fund the orders from clients of my liquid cooled edge and hyperscale computers we build. It’s actually a marriage of Technology and funding.

 

The pumpless thermosyphon technology is capable of cooling entire 72U server racks running at overclocked speeds 24x7. We are capable of running chips faster and cooler than quad-radiator liquid cooled solutions because we offer 3-stage (air, water, refrigerant vapor) dual phase (liquid refrigerant that vaporizes A custom built liquid cooled computer from the ground up. Hyperscale or edge technology.

 

The 8-core Intel i9-9900KS chip is overclocked to 5.2 GHz. If you need power and speed more than anything else, this is definitely the place to be. The engineer who developed this is one of the brightest stars in the technology universe. If you have any funding needs feel free to reach out to me. I can fund any company that has good revenue and EBITDA

The NREL data center is very efficient. However, when looking at heat recovery, you have to balance the extra power required at higher CPU temperature with the cost of efficient heat pumps. (a one to one comparison of watts of heat to watts of computer power is not appropriate) A hotter running processor may require 5% more power and a typical heat pump has a COP of 4.

This means that if you run your 100 watt processor hotter so it uses 105 watts to get usable heat, and the heat your are replacing requires 25 watts of power to produce 100 watts of heat, the 20 watt power savings for a 100 watts of heat may not justify the expense of hooking the computer to the heating system.

Also, once you hook up a heat source that you can't control to a heating system, you need to have a backup source of heat.

I don't think it makes sense for San Diego, but it might for a place where heat is expensive and the computers are running at full load all of the time.

Hi Andrew,

 

Yes, this is currently a topic in the ACS Harmonization project. Best bet is to get in touch with the DCF group. ACS and DCF are working together on topics like this. I will put you in touch directly as well.

Hi

Hesham, I am not aware of cellular in data centers. I am sorry.

I am interested to find out if there is any work in OCP projects that is related to using Air-cooled data center or liquid cooled data center hall expelled heat for thermal utilities in surrounding buildings? Also if there is any direct/indirect evaporative media work being done as well.

Thanks,

Andrew
