Welcome to the Open Compute Project's Open Rack Project.
This project if focused on optimizing all of the infrastructure that IT gear uses for very large scale deployments.
This includes items like:
Physical support structures
-Shelves and adapters
-Cable management and gear interconnects
Stable Power delivery
-power distribution system
-battery back-up
-power conversion
This project is focused on solving problems for large scale deployment like:
-fast deployment of resources to the data center
-efficient upgrade cycles
-simple physical and thermal interfaces for the data center
-quickly identifying and servicing of failed components
-extracting value from components with different lifetimes
