OpenRAN is an initiative to build next-gen RAN solutions based on a general-purpose vendor-neutral hardware and software architecture. Telefónica has been a front-runner in driving the OpenRAN initiative. Ahead of planned OpenRAN trials later this year in Brazil, Germany, Spain, and the UK, telecoms giant Telefónica is collaborating with several ecosystem vendors, including Supermicro and Intel, to develop disaggregated radio access network solutions. The group is working from a set of specifications developed by the O-RAN Alliance. The overarching goal is to open up radio interfaces to allow operators to take their pick of best-in-breed solutions, thereby shifting network economics and fostering collaborative innovation. As part of this trial, Telefónica has been working with Supermicro on a range of telco solutions, including those geared toward Edge computing and O-RAN distributed units (DUs).

In this talk, Telefónica will share its vision and the benefits of OpenRAN, and the ongoing collaborative work with Supermicro to make it a reality.

  • The Speed of RAID Fused with the Scale of Object Jul 28 2021 5:30 pm UTC 26 mins
    Paul Evans, Solution Advisor, RozoFS; Damien Zhao, Product Manager, Supermicro
    There is a well-deserved love for the speed and simplicity of RAID, but in a world of impossibly-large HDDs and Multi-PB buckets, there is little RAID can do for us at scale. Unfortunately, the 'classic' Erasure Coding used to replace RAID has brought us mathematical complexity, high costs and significant performance impacts. Is there a way to blend both speed and scale and run it on simple and efficient hardware? Indeed there is: Rozo Systems has adapted a mathematical transform (Mojette) to function as an encode/decode engine mimicking the simplicity of RAID, the integrity of erasure coding, and the scalability and distributed access of object storage. Even better: it works beautifully over SMB3, NFS4, and the Rozo DirectSCALE parallel client. Find out how RozoFS is easy on the hardware, but greased lightning for your applications and users.

  • Worlds fastest File System for HPC, AI and Machine Learning Recorded: Jul 27 2021 19 mins
    Shimon Ben-David, CTO, WekaIO; Alvin Chu, Sr Director of Storage and AI Technologies Solutions, Supermicro
    One of the main challenges of a true scale out system is scaling the metadata in an effective way to enable effective scale out without compromising on performance, traditionally this is solved using a meta data server that then becomes a performance bottleneck or by TOKEN sharing between nodes that becomes less effective as the cluster grows. in this session we will present how WekaIO a fully software defined data platform solves this issue allowing for effective scale out to 1000s of servers and actually increasing performance as more servers are added to the cluster. This unique approach also allows for multiple configurations options from the Supermicro product portfolio.

  • Orchestrating Data Storage to Enable New Performance & Cost/Performance Profiles Recorded: Jul 27 2021 20 mins
    Curtis Anderson, Software Architect, Panasas; Josh Grossman, Product Manager, Supermicro
    Along with the growth in unstructured data, the workloads being applied to that data are becoming less structured as well. Clouds have (re)taught us what HPC sites already knew, that compute should be shared for highest utilization.
    Shared compute requires shared storage and results in many storage workloads being applied at the same time.
    The explosion of AI/ML brings an entirely new workload that needs to be supported, without buying a new storage system.
    No one wants to buy special purpose storage, storage should serve all your needs without having to sync data across different systems for different uses.
