Specs & Designs
Our first step for the Open Compute Project is releasing the specifications and mechanical drawings. The second step is working with the community to improve them. Please take a look, tell us what we did wrong and join us in working together to make every data center more efficient.
Below you will find technical specifications and CAD drawings (DXF and SolidWorks parts/assemblies) for the Open Compute Project server components. To view the CAD files, you will need to unzip them, and use the free eDrawings viewer for OS X or Windows.
Open Compute servers are designed to be efficient, inexpensive and easy to service. They’re also vanity free, with no extra plastic and significantly fewer parts than traditional servers.

The Open Vault is a simple and cost-effective storage solution with a modular I/O topology that’s built for the Open Rack. The Open Vault offers high disk densities, holding 30 drives in a 2U chassis, and can operate with almost any host server. Its innovative, expandable design puts serviceability first, with easy drive replacement no matter the mounting height.
Data Center Technology
Designed in tandem with our servers, the data center maximizes mechanical performance and thermal and electrical efficiency. It accepts 277 volts of AC, so more energy makes it from the grid to the data center to server components.
