Insyde® Software Forms the OpenBMC Collaboration Center
OpenBMC Expertise Available for Strategic Consulting and Outsourced Engineering Engagements to Support Customers’ In-house OpenBMC Projects
TAIPEI, TAIWAN – March 22, 2022 – Insyde® Software, a leading provider of UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) and systems management BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) firmware, announced today the formation of the OpenBMC Collaboration Center (OCC) where cloud service providers, data center server makers and suppliers and networking/edge device manufacturers can engage with and retain the services of the company’s engineers who have a deep knowledge of BMC and OpenBMC technology.
As a long-time developer of BMC firmware products, Insyde Software recognizes that some companies prefer to keep the design and development of their firmware in-house but may not have all the necessary firmware expertise, implementation techniques, experience, or enough people to get this firmware into production.
This is where the large team of engineers that make up the OCC can help. By offering firmware design, development of OpenBMC features and a pool of engineers for outsourcing, engaging with Insyde’s OCC can dramatically reduce the development difficulties and time-to-market problems of a company’s OpenBMC project.
Insyde engineers working within the OCC have significant experience and knowledge in the following disciplines and more:
- BMCWeb (web server interface)
- D-bus interface
- IPMI compliance
- Redfish interfaces
- PMCI, Platform Management Components Intercommunication (e.g., MCTP, PLDM, etc.)
- Thermal and Sensor management
- Power States and Chassis Control
- BIOS to BMC interfaces and cooperation
- Firmware update
“The OCC represents a unique hands-on experience for our CSP, data center, networking and edge computing customers,” said Banjars Shen, Sr. Director of BMC Firmware Development at Insyde Software and Director of the OCC. “This talented team of engineers can provide leadership, best practices, consulting, and real-world OpenBMC implementation support to speed our customer’s time-to-market and improve code quality,” added Shen.
