The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) announced today that STORDIS, a full-service provider in the field of Open Networking that offers consultancy, system integration, professional support and software development services, has joined as a Platinum member. OCP was initiated in 2011 with a mission to apply the benefits of open source to hardware and rapidly increase the pace of innovation in, near and around the data center and beyond. Since then, OCP has been consistently innovating around open-source contributions, with 200 member companies and thousands of technology leaders and engineers worldwide.
STORDIS, an official sponsor of the OCP Global Summit, has built a great reputation and a leading industry network since it was founded in 2007. The company, which is completely dedicated to the idea of Open Networking, counts as one of Europe’s leaders in this emerging technology and is especially known for its knowledge on the P4 programming language. STORDIS runs two of the best-equipped Open Networking testing facilities in Europe, one in the UK and the other in Germany. STORDIS LABS tests and develops various hardware and software combinations, including ONOS, and initiated an Open Source project for an SDN controller for the broadcasting industry. The companies training program STORDIS ACADEMY educates industry experts on Open Networking technologies such as the P4 programming language.
“We are excited to have STORDIS join OCP, as networking continues to increase in importance to our community. The company’s history of open-sourced solutions and broad offerings, including training, can be invaluable in continuing our accelerating momentum,” stated Rocky Bullock, Open Compute Project CEO.
“Joining the OCP is a great step for STORDIS, making it a vital part of the Open Networking revolution,” said Alexander Jeffries, CEO of STORDIS. “Our business model has evolved completely around the opportunities an open networking environment can offer, and we see that partners who believe in these chances are often missing the knowledge and technology they need to achieve their goals. As an OCP member, we can share our knowledge and experience with the open-hardware community, even as we in turn benefit from a network of companies that have the same beliefs and mindshare.”
“STORDIS is playing a key role in the transformation to open networking by developing and delivering network solutions built with various open-source hardware and software ingredients. These solutions are necessary to accelerate adoption and growth of the hardware available from the OCP community. STORDIS will also provide valuable guidance and collaboration to our networking community,” stated Bill Carter, Chief Technology Officer for the Open Compute Project Foundation.
STORDIS will launch its own open-hardware solutions at the OCP Global Summit in March 2019, and Jeffries noted that their acceptance by the OCP is the next logical step. “More and more of our partners have requested hardware features that are not yet available,” he said. “Our forthcoming products will fill a gap in the market and help us continue to offer the best services and solutions to support the open networking revolution.”
