Open Compute Project Considers Switch Specs
The Open Compute Project (OCP) is pushing forward with its efforts to develop an open, OS-agnostic top-of-rack switch. Earlier this week, it highlighted four specifications from Broadcom, Cumulus Networks, Intel and Mellanox under consideration by the OCP incubation committee. The OCP was launched in 2011 by Facebook with a focus on developing open data center components such as racks and servers. The group, now a non-profit foundation, expanded its charter six months ago to include network hardware.
