The OpenRMC-DM Sub-Project is under the direction of the OCP Hardware Management Project Group. Please reach out to the Sub-project lead if you would like to get involved.


The OpenRMC-DM Sub-project creates designs and specifications to enable interoperable manageability for Open Compute rack managers. Deliverables from this project will include:

  • Specification for the interface exposed by the rack manager to the rest of the datacenter
  • Requirements on the interface between the rack manager and the on-platform components
  • An open-source implementation of the rack manager controller software 


The OpenRMC shall specify manageability capability of the rack management controller (RMC). The sub-project’s activities include:

  • Specifying the northbound interface for the RMC
  • Specifying the southbound interface requirements for the RMC
  • Overseeing the OCP’s Rack-Manager source repository

Device Manager - Incubation provides a unified method to:

  • Identify and Query devices for Asset Management
  • Monitor early warning signs to help with Fault Isolation, and take Preventive Actions
  • Manage SW and FW   

This enables the entire network of connected devices (including networking, storage, and server) to be monitored and managed remotely, thus, ensuring their High Availability.
