Dear OCP Community:

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”
Since its founding in 2011, the Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation has experienced some incredible momentum in a relatively short time period. As Facebook was rethinking its infrastructure to accommodate its unprecedented growth and the technology needs to support it, they made the decision to share its designs with the public. The OCP Foundation was incorporated by Facebook, Intel and Rackspace with Goldman Sachs and Andy Bechtolsheim (joining soon after). These OCP board members sought to create the same collaboration and innovation we see in open source software in the hardware space. And that’s exactly what’s happening.

The OCP Incubation Committee (IC) is made up of dedicated volunteers and thought leaders who are in, near, and around the data center hardware ecosystem. We now have a vacant seat on the IC and will be holding a special election to fill this seat. This position will be an interim position until the next election in June 2017, when the next regular IC Election is held.
