Open Compute Project


Project Leads: Robert Bunger (Schneider Electric)

IC Representative: Jason Schafer (Google)

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

The Data Center 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 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
