ITRenew to Lead Executive Session at OCP Global Summit

ITRenew President Ali Fenn Shares Insights to Overcoming Challenges of Adopting a Circular Data Center Economy

NEWARK, CA —  February 11, 2020 – ITRenew, the world’s leader in hyperscale IT equipment transformation and circular economic models for TCO efficiency, today announced its President, Ali Fenn, will be featured in an executive session at the much-anticipated OCP Global Summit taking place next month at the San Jose Convention Center in California. The annual Summit brings together nearly 4,000 key decision makers, executives, engineers, developers and suppliers to help grow, drive and support the open hardware ecosystem in, near and around the datacenter and beyond.

Data center technology is turning over at an unprecedented rate, meaning that neither equipment nor investment go to waste as application workloads and infrastructure demands increase and emerge as a new business imperative. In response, the world’s largest data center owners are leveraging open hardware to drive major advances in total cost of ownership (TCO) and optimize their corresponding hardware refresh cycles. However, the same opportunity has not been available to the broader global IT markets and the exponential growth in data and compute requirements are driving infrastructure scale that is unsustainable.

Ali will address and share solutions to these challenges in her session “The TCO of OCP: Maximize Your Financial & Sustainability Results Today.” Join her on Wednesday, March 4 at 3:00 p.m. PST to learn how embracing a circular economic IT model democratizes access to OCP solutions for enterprises globally, maximizes the lifetime value of assets and unlocks the industry’s tremendous collective power to achieve essential sustainability advantages. She’ll also share groundbreaking real-word data, customer experiences and products demonstrating how these new models enable companies to maximize the lifetime value of their IT hardware assets while significantly decreasing their TCO.

“The major hyperscalers have led the work in the shift to open and ODM hardware, enjoying all of the advantages that come from moving away from the traditional deploy-and-dispose approach,” commented Ali Fenn, President, ITRenew. “Now is the time for infrastructure buyers everywhere to benefit by adopting circular principles and solutions, seizing the tremendous opportunity they offer. We’re excited to help lead the conversation at the OCP Global Summit and continue our commitment to transforming data center economics and sustainability across the global IT industry.”
