Microsoft Platinum Sponsor Presentation: Reimagining Open Hardware Innovation at Cloud Speed

The world is increasingly moving to a future based on cloud computing. This Fourth Industrial Revolution will feature major technology advances fuelled by data – the electricity of our age – as its fundamental cornerstone. Microsoft is building a global trusted infrastructure to power this new engine of transformation as part of our mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. 

Operating one of the largest public clouds, Microsoft constantly pushes forward to drive innovation. We need to keep pace with tremendous growth in the cloud, support a broad spectrum of workloads including emerging cloud services, and enable easy scaling across global datacenter regions. 

To accomplish this, our innovation needs to expand beyond developing new hardware to the transform the model for open source hardware development. Project Olympus is envisioned to usher in a new era of open source hardware development at cloud speed with the OCP community. 

We’ll reveal the benefits of this new model to create innovation through an iterative design process and spark a development and manufacturing ecosystem optimized for efficiency and cost. 

For Microsoft, innovation + open source hardware = community collaboration at cloud speed.
