The Open Compute Project Foundation was created to design the most efficient server, storage and related designs for the next generation of data centers in an open and collaborative development model. By sharing designs that maximize density, minimize power consumption and deliver expected performance, completely new computing environments can be developed, free from the limitations of legacy thinking.
