Programming In A Disaggregated Universe
The user-led organization, whose members include Facebook, has called for a separation and disaggregation of the core components of our computer systems. The OCP wants to see the core components of system design including processors, motherboards, and networking interconnects all disaggregated so they can be upgraded independently. The scheme is said to be in marked contrast to the current industry trend of converged systems combining servers, storage, and networking into a single system. At this stage it is hard to say whether a more widespread user and developer backlash may surface, but one has to consider it as a strong possibility.
