What is the Open Compute Project?

The Open Compute Project (OCP) is a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology to efficiently support the growing demands on computing infrastructure. OCP, whilst still in its infancy is gaining momentum and many big brands such as Nokia, Tencent, Google and Facebook are all championing this revolutionary movement. The four OCP technology principles With OCP there is a consistent drive for excellence to ensure a level of consistency in all technology contributions. These are: Efficiency OCP contributions must have an efficient design, whether this is thermal efficiency, reduction in costs/latencies or power delivery and conversion. Scale OCP contributions must be scalable, meaning the technology is designed with the right supporting features to allow for its maintenance in large scale deployments. Openness OCP contributions must be open and strive to comply with a set of already existing open interfaces, at the very least able to provide one. Impact OCP contributions must create meaningful positive impact within the OCP ecosystem. All […]

After several years of negotiations the Council agreed to a ten year lease and in June 2017 planning permission was granted and work on the building started in earnest. The actual implementation of the project was achieved […]

Open Compute Project (OCP) Tech Update & Social Time

The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP), the open source hardware community, holds regular meetups to discuss key initiatives within the data centre industry. Top OCP members share their learnings and best practices on implementing OCP and how best to leverage open hardware within your infrastructure. As an advocate of OCP, InflectionTech regularly participates in these events and in February it was held at Booking.com HQ in Amsterdam. Here InflectionTech Director, Mark Dansie held a workshop to discuss Deploying OCP in a Colocation Facility covering the recently published Colocation Guidelines. These guidelines were the result of diligent work done by the Data Centre project within OCP and outline what is needed within a facility to deploy and run OCP.
