The Myths of Renewable Infrastructure

Presented by

Ynema Mangum Director, Product Management at ITRenew

About this talk

OCP is no stranger to myths and misconceptions. It comes with the territory when the new and unknown threatens the status quo. Together we’ve worked to debunk fictions like Open can’t be as good, it’s impossible for anyone but hyperscalers to adopt, and it’s hard to deploy. In this Talk, we’ll tackle a fresh round of myths – those surrounding recertified OCP hardware. Despite all the advantages circular economics brings to the data center – lower cost, better performance & resiliency, higher efficiency, time-to-value and sustainability – many who could benefit still hesitate. Hear from an experienced vanity HW and proprietary SW product manager who learned the truth, rejected long-held false beliefs and offers a fresh take on OCP acceleration through renewable IT infrastructure. She’ll cover the tough questions, give you the facts, and share breakthrough concepts – like reimagined supply chains that smash current roadblocks to bits – that will put any lingering objections to rest.
