The Open Compute Project (OCP) is a collaborative community, focused on designing hardware technology to efficiently support the growing demands on compute infrastructure. The Open Compute Project Foundation provides a structure in which individuals and organizations can share their intellectual property with others and encourage the IT industry to evolve. Arm joined OCP and became a platinum member in 2018.
Around the same time, Arm announced a dedicated infrastructure roadmap and a new brand identity, Arm Neoverse. Arm Neoverse-powered products, from our global ecosystem, will enable the diverse set of high-performance, secure, and scalable solutions required for the infrastructure foundation, in a world of a trillion intelligent devices.
The Arm ecosystem has had tremendous success in the infrastructure market. From cellular base stations to routers and servers, there are more Arm processors shipping into the infrastructure market than any other architecture. With nearly 30 percent-unit share, and growing, we are the infrastructure architecture of choice. Developing products for infrastructure is complex. From high-performance servers to power-efficient edge compute platforms to gateways and WAN routers, meeting a diverse and demanding set of requirements is only possible with a broad ecosystem, which is built on high performance, secure, scalable architectures.
Synergy between Arm and OCP
We see significant synergy between the Arm ecosystem and the OCP community:
At the OCP Regional Summit in Amsterdam this year, Arm will present the details of the SBBR and the Arm ServerReady program, with a plan to contribute the published SBBR specification to OCP. We will also talk about our SBMG efforts and OpenBMC participation. Finally, we will share what Arm and our partners are planning to contribute to the OCP OpenEdge initiative.
Supporting the server ecosystem for the future
Arm is participating in a wide variety of programs to support Arm infrastructure and the server ecosystem for the future. As a platinum member of OCP, Arm is demonstrating its commitment to support the growing demands on compute infrastructure, to enable Arm and OCP communities to work closely and succeed together.
