The Open Compute Project releases open source hardware which has been designed without legacy constraints. The focus of the project is on computing scalability for the lowest total cost. This has led to a reanalysing of all aspects of a server ecosystem, resulting in improvements in everything from energy efficiency to reliability.
Data centres are being asked to support denser configurations when it comes to power and cooling, which can rapidly outstrip the capabilities of their mechanical and electrical infrastructure. Aegis Data has looked to address this demand through its purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility, with data halls specifically engineered to deliver the high-density power and cooling required by these next generation platforms.
