The Open Compute Project attendees have left the exhibit hall and returned to their homes and offices, nonetheless the excitement of Open Compute Summit V lingers. With a growing number of companies joining the project and enterprise interest in the efficient hardware generated by the Open Compute movement, the event drew a large interest from the tech and data center community. This year, the project gained tremendous momentum, with tech giants such as Microsoft joining the project and with moments such as IO CEO George Slessman demonstrating a live cloud (running on OpenStack software and Open Compute hardware) being deployed in a data center via an iPhone.
