What Is the Open Compute Project (OCP) and How Is It Revolutionizing the IT Industry?

Data center architects are continually developing new strategies to make data centers more efficient, easier to integrate and scale. However, when designing a data center, you often have to mix and match switches, servers, storage components and other hardware, which makes it more difficult to design for superior performance or better energy efficiency. The Open Compute Project (OCP) was created to form a global community where vendors can collaborate on designs, specifications, and lessons learned from data center projects to ultimately make computer hardware more efficient, scalable, and versatile.
