Leendert van Doorn, Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Corp. will address the intersection between innovations in silicon technology and the resultant impacts on power, performance and efficiency. Innovations incorporated in Microsoft’s Project Olympus enable a broad spectrum of advanced workloads and support cutting-edge capabilities in delivering cloud services.
Microsoft has been building and managing datacenters for decades, during which time we’ve been a driving force in innovation across design, operations, and service delivery.
Our open source journey has shared the designs and technologies that power our own world-class cloud infrastructure, to enable an open, community-driven approach to innovation, and develop an industry- wide ecosystem via OCP.
The need to keep pace with tremendous growth in the cloud is clear. Equally important is the ability to deliver unique services and support a broad spectrum of workloads including those that are likely to spike in the coming years, given advances in fields like machine learning and AI.
In addition to keeping pace with the tremendous growth in the cloud, cloud infrastructure needs to balance power, performance and efficiency to deliver a broad spectrum of advanced workloads and anticipate emerging cloud services yet to be developed.
