  • The world is moving towards a future of cloud based computing.

  • At Microsoft, we've been building infrastructure really

  • to enable people to use our services whenever they need it.

  • The global infrastructure that we've built out supports over 200

  • services, with over a billion customers.

  • We tend to go like 10X every 4 or

  • 5 years in terms of the scale at which we grow.

  • A big part of our story now and our focus is really around

  • how do we simplify the whole supply chain so that we can respond quickly

  • to the fast changing business that we're in?

  • Microsoft Project Olympus is really a culmination of all of these

  • different requirements that we've evolved to drive a standard platform

  • that we can deploy at scale.

  • >> With Project Olympus we've really designed a modular and

  • flexible infrastructure that allows for a wide range applications.

  • We've designed for larger CPUs and higher wattage.

  • And we've even designed to allow the expansion with JBOD

  • capabilities to expand the overall

  • number of workloads that we can run in these environments.

  • We've taken a lot of learnings at running hyper scale data centers and

  • really used that in the design of Project Olympus.

  • The modularity and flexibility of the system allows us to build

  • solutions that can deliver, compute, storage, networking capabilities.

  • Being able to provide that as Microsoft in the open community

  • allows everyone in the ecosystem to take advantage of it.

  • It's been really exciting to work with the OCP community.

  • Their enthusiasm in helping us design and

  • develop, it's been a great collaboration and

  • it's allowed us to bring a solution to market much, much quicker.

  • >> Intel has been involved in the OCP

  • community from the very beginning.

  • As we transition to our next generation Intel Xeon processors

  • code named Skylake, we see the opportunity to really take

  • platforms like Project Olympus and

  • the other investments that we made in OCP, and see real adoption.

  • Not just in the hyper-scale arena, but across many different customer

  • types from to telco to enterprise end users in general.

  • This was really an effort to create a universal motherboard and

  • set of building blocks that would enable many customers

  • to deploy this project in their environment beyond just Microsoft.

  • It enables customers to take advantage of performance efficiency

  • and cost effectiveness.

  • So it really speeds tech adoption not just for

  • the biggest players industries but for

  • enterprises or other cloud service providers that want to follow suit.

  • >> OCP really wants us to promote hardware innovation and

  • encourage choice.

  • And doing both at the same time is very difficult.

  • I think Project Olympus has a really unique way of addressing both

  • the imperative for innovation, and the urgent need for choice.

  • It allows the flexibility and key components to tune each system for

  • the particular workload that it's going to run, whether it's machine

  • intelligence all the way down to something as prosaic as email.

  • Microsoft is one of the leaders in OCP and

  • it sits in a unique position where it's both a huge user

  • of OCP systems as well as a provider of technology itself.

  • By working with Microsoft, we can leverage the understanding Microsoft

  • has on both sides of that equation to produce better CPU solutions.

  • >> Microsoft saw the needs of this open sourced community.

  • They decided that they would design a highly efficient,

  • scalable rack architecture.

  • And they would deliver it as a set of building blocks to the industry

  • through Open Compute Project.

  • The Olympus engineers recognized the need to retain emissions,

  • safety, and regulatory compliance.

  • They have a very flexible AC input system into the power.

  • And that flexibility allows that rack architecture to be installed in

  • virtually anyone's data center around the world regardless

  • of the power infrastructure that they already have in place.

  • Project Olympus is gonna be a fantastic hardware platform for

  • driving new usages.

  • Because it's completely open source

  • we now have a community that has access to the complete design files.

  • We'll be able to innovate on top of those design files, and

  • create new products, new IOs that works with project Olympus and

  • they'll be able to tackle new use cases that they have.

  • >> Project Olympus is the most flexible, modular,

  • hardware architecture that we've designed and

  • we're excited to share that with the ecosystem of OCP.
