Data Center Facility


Project Lead: Brevan Reyher (Rackspace)

IC Representative: Robert Bunger (Schneider Electric)

Designed in tandem with Open Compute servers, the data center facility project maximizes mechanical performance and thermal and electrical efficiency. 

The Data Center Facility project comprises electrical and mechanical components.  

Even if you can’t build a data center, you can deploy Open Compute Project technologies in collocated data centers.

  • Deploy servers in Open Racks

  • Retrofit 19″ racks to accommodate OCP servers. 

Project Scope:

The Data Center Facility Project will focus its efforts in 5 functional areas of the data center:

  1. Data Center Facility Power

  2. Data Center Facility Cooling

  3. IT Space Layout and Design

  4. Data Center Facility Monitoring and Control

  5. Data Center Facilities Operation
