Analysis of Data Center Architectures Supporting Open Compute Project

June 18, 2019

Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

Enhancing data mesh: How distributed ledger solutions empower decentralized governance

whitePaper | June 27, 2023

Data mesh is an innovative approach to data management that offers a solution to the most common challenges organizations face when dealing with large-scale data management. Data mesh concept consists of four key principles for large-scale data management in a multi-tiered, multi-domain organizational structure: domainoriented ownership, data as product, federated computational governance and a self-service data platform. These all promote a more agile, efficient and scalable data architecture. However, one of the central challenges to implementing data mesh is designing decentralized governance mechanisms that align with its core principles.
