Facebook Shows its Yosemite Open Source Modular

At the Open Compute Summit in San Jose, Facebook introduced its "Yosemite" open source, modular chassis for high-powered microservers.


Key design elements to the system:

  • A server-class SoC with multiple memory channels, which provides high-performance computing in 65W TDP for SoC and 90W for the whole server card.
  • A standard SoC card interface to provide a CPU-agnostic system interface.
  • A platform-agnostic system management solution to manage the system and these 4 SoC server cards, regardless of vendor.
  • A multi-host network interconnect card following OCP Mezzanine Card 2.0 specification, which connects up to 4 SoC server cards through a single Ethernet port.
  • A cost-effective, flexible, and easy-to-service system structure.
  • This system will be fully compatible with Open Rack, which can accommodate up to 192 SoC server cards in a single rack. 

Facebook is contributing the design to OCP.
