Multiple innovative products were unveiled at the show including this rack design. Quanta partnered with Intel in producing this Open Compute Project compliant rack (prototype shown) which will use silicon photonics. This ultra-low latency technology will increase the speed at which components in the rack can speak to each other. The forthcoming silicon photonics technology will enable 100 Gbps interconnects, which is enough bandwidth to serve multiple processor generations. This technology could allow components that previously needed to be bound to the same motherboard to be spread out within a rack.
Scenes from Day 1 of Open Compute Summit
The first day of the Open Compute Project Summit IV drew a crowd of 1,900 hardware and technology professionals. And there was buzz among the group about the technological innovations. Here's photo highlights of the action in Santa Clara.

The first day of the Open Compute Project Summit IV drew a crowd of 1,900 hardware and technology professionals to the Santa Clara Convention Center. And there was buzz among the group about the technological innovations. The Open Compute (OCP) Project is now in its second year and its emphasis is advancing technologies and releasing the designs as open hardware, with the aim is to improve servers and change data centers. Here's a photo gallery of the first day: Highlights from Open Compute Summit IV.
