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.

All contributions made to the OCP foundation are evaluated against these principles and must demonstrate that the product contribution meets some or all of these points. Impact is a particularly strong principle because it covers the use of new technologies, products that can build on top of already existing OCP solutions and can strengthen the supply chain by contributing alternative compatible solutions.
