The DC Automation Sub-Project was formed to promote, support and guide development of physical automation solutions related to the data centers. We aim to use automation technologies to boost the physical operation efficiency and safety in data centers and supporting infrastructure. This sub-project will provide direction with respect to known industry challenges and engage industry partners to develop relevant technology roadmaps aiming to achieve safer and more efficient operations. OCPs unique combination of hyperscale influence, vendors and projects can be leveraged to accelerate the industry’s automation goals.
