Open Compute and ODCA to Collaborate
Will it be the beginning of a productive friendship? Working toward the goal of standards-based, interoperable cloud computing, the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) and Open Compute Project (OCP) launched a collaborative effort at the Intel Developer Forum 2011 to accelerate the adoption of cloud standards. The initiative also hopes to further efficient data center and infrastructure design; spur rapid hardware innovation; and encourage greater openness and industry collaboration. Intel serves as technical adviser to the ODCA. This seven-minute video (below) features Kirk Skaugen, Intel, and Frank Frankovsky, Facebook’s Open Compute lead, discussing how this partnership will benefit enterprises.
