Open source for distributed data collection at the Open Compute Summit

 Everything is a datacenter - your smartphone, your laptop, even the connected devices in your home like your connected thermostat.  Every single one of these devices has compute, storage, networking and a set of services and applications running in an operating system that connect into the broader fabric we know today as the cloud. One of the emerging challenges in today’s device dominated world is managing all of these endpoints.

Lack of transparency meant stranded resources and compliance challenges.

The result was an unwieldy juggernaut that seemed to have lost sight of why datacenters exist in the first place: to provide the best experience for applications, the lifeblood of businesses.
