Rack & Power
Project Chair: Steve Mills | Brian Obernesser
The Rack & Power Project Group is the first rack standard that’s designed for data centers, integrating the rack into the data center infrastructure, part of the Open Compute Project’s “grid to gates” philosophy, a holistic design process that considers the interdependence of everything from the power grid to the gates in the chips on each motherboard.
Specs, standards, and products that support:
Rack System Architectures such as the following:
19” EIA Compatible
21” Open Rack
Rack-Level Power Systems
Conversion, Storage, and Control Systems of power between the data center infrastructure and the IT gear.
- Shelves, supports, sub-chassis, and adapters needed to implement IT gear
