MegaRAC Composer Pod Management Software from AMI Featured at Open Compute Project Summit, March 20 – 21, 2018

Tuesday: March 20, 2018

NORCROSS, GEORGIA / SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, USA - AMI, a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, is pleased to announce that its MegaRAC® Composer™ Pod Management Firmware Solution will be featured at the Open Compute Project Summit 2018 in San Jose, CA from March 20 – 21, 2018.

Attendees of the Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit come from the technology, finance, government, and consulting sectors and represent a wide audience, from engineers to senior executives, all with the shared goal of helping shape the future of OCP and influencing the next generation data center.

During OCP Summit, MegaRAC Composer Pod Management Software from AMI will be featured as part of a multi-vendor FPGA and NVMe pooling demonstration staged and hosted by Intel Corporation - a Platinum Sponsor of this year's OCP Summit.

Attendees will experience how MegaRAC Composer can browse physical resources at the rack, chassis and system level, all through an intuitive web-based user interface. This interoperability demo will highlight key capabilities and technologies of an integrated solution based on Intel® Rack Scale Design (RSD) technology, including:

  • Pooling of disaggregated, PCIe-attached NVMe and FGPA resources
  • Intel® Rack Scale Design discovery of available pooled resources including Compute, Storage, and Accelerators
  • Intel® Rack Scale Design modification of resources attached to a composed server
  • Management of the discovery and assembly process through AMI MegaRAC Composer
  • Acceleration of genomics and financial workloads using Intel® NVMe SSDs and Altera FPGAs

MegaRAC Composer Pod Management Software is fully compliant with the Intel® Rack Scale Design and DMTF Redfish™ standards, prodviding demand-driven dynamic scaling to optimize datacenter resource utilization. It also allows for the composition of physical resources based on templates, which can then be stored in the software and reused as a time-saving feature. In addition, MegaRAC Composer gives users the ability to power on, force off, and gracefully shutdown composed nodes.

Subramonian Shankar, President, CEO and Founder of AMI, commented on the inclusion of MegaRAC Composer in the Intel demo at OCP Summit by saying: "AMI is very grateful to Intel and the other interoperability demonstration partners for the opportunity to present our MegaRAC Composer Pod Management software once again at Open Compute Project Summit. AMI maintains a strong commitment to developing world-class management technologies for rack and scalable computing systems, drawing on our decades of providing remote management solutions to top-tier OEMs and ODMs around the globe, and OCP Summit is the perfect stage for showcasing our expertise to the industry at large."

AMI encourages attendees of OCP Summit to visit the Intel display and see MegaRAC Composer in action as part of the Intel interoperability demo. Representatives from AMI will be on the show floor throughout the event to speak to attendees who wish to know more about MegaRAC Composer and how it provides intuitive, efficient and powerful Rack Scale Design-compliant management for modular rack systems.
