Manufacturing Process: Level 1 to 6 L1-L6
The manufacturing process levels referred to here are industry standard terms used to describe the 11 stages of the manufacturing process. Manufacturing Levels 1 to 6 are performed by Hyperscalers Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) partner: Quanta Computer Incorporated (a Taiwan based manufacturing giant).
Manufacturing Process: Level 6 to 10 L6-L10
Manufacturing Levels 6 to Level 10 are performed by Hyperscalers as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
Hyperscalers is the world's first Open OEM. Unlike the traditional locked OEMs like HP, Dell or CISCO, Hyperscalers does NOT:
- Rebrand its systems, commodities or components. Customers know that they are getting the highest possibly quality;
- Lock-Down its hardware systems, commodities and components. Customers don't ever become vendor locked;
- Lock-Down the software when pre-loaded on hardware. Customers can re-purpose equipment and appliance later - be it a switch or a server.
Manufacturing Process: Level 10 to 11 L10-L11
Manufacturing Levels 10 to Level 11 refer to the final stage of the manufacturing process. This stage is where the complete hardware and possibly software system becomes an ‘appliance’ - be it IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, AI, HPC, Deep Learning or Machine Learning. The appliance contains everything service providers need to activate their services.
