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 at the Rack level and below
-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
