Open Compute Project Hits Critical Mass

downloadThe Facebook-led Open Compute Project is growing into a potential force to shape data centers and the networking industry. The OCP’s mission is developing open source designs for networking, servers, storage, hardware management, power supply, chassis and more. The OCP has been an interesting sideshow since its founding almost exactly four years ago, based on work Facebook did developing its Prineville, Ore., data center. For that facility, Facebook built its own custom-designed servers, power supplies, server racks and battery backup systems. Facebook’s goal was to increase energy efficiency and reduce cost.
