While traditional construction methods can often lock you into sourcing components from a single vendor, taking a vendor-neutral approach allows you to source material from any number of suppliers. This mitigates many common construction challenges, including supply chain constraints that lead to project delays and cost overruns.
In addition to vendor neutrality, the Open Compute Project (OCP) has been working in tandem with other data center industry leaders and companies since 2011, to combat these same challenges by championing another methodology closely aligned to vendor agnosticism, called open sourcing. This allows for data center designers to share designs and specifications for data center hardware, software and components, which provides another path to streamline data center construction.
So what does this all mean for you and your construction projects in 2021?
We’re teaming up with the experts at the OCP to bring you our latest webinar, Vendor Neutrality & Open Source: Optimizing the Data Center Design Process on January 20th at 2 PM EST. We’ll provide the answer to that question and more, including:
Come prepared with questions, as the speakers will open the floor to Q&A at the end of the webinar.
