Creating Ecosystems around open source standards and the Commons is a challenging task that has been taken strategically by many of the dominating brands of our times - such as Google with Android.

For this reason, we wanted to feature one iconic project on the podcast that we often use as a yardstick when debating opportunities to develop truly open ecosystem strategies: the Open Compute Project Foundation, initiated by Facebook in 2011.

Details on what OCP is and does will be shared directly during the podcast by our guests: Steve Helvie, VP of Channel, and Archna Haylock, Community Director at OCP.

In his role, Steve helps to educate organizations on the benefits of open source hardware designs and the value of “community-driven” engineering for the data center. Archna, on the other hand, is responsible for the global community, and involved directly in its governance processes.

In this inspiring conversation - we touch upon the topics of innovation, collaboration and industry change - and our two guests show how openness can provide solutions to an increasing set of global challenges. We explore what’s needed for organizations to collaborate in an open source way, how to view competitors in the ecosystem, and how the definition of a data centre has changed through emerging needs for circularity and sustainability.
