I have some exciting news to share: The Open Compute Project Foundation board has voted to expand to include two new members. Bill Laing, Corporate Vice President of Cloud and Enterprise at Microsoft, and Jason Taylor, Director of Infrastructure at Facebook, have joined the board effective immediately. I recently left Facebook to pursue a new OCP-related startup opportunity, and will remain on the board as an independent. The board has also voted to retain me as the president and chairman of the foundation.
The Open Compute Project continues to gain momentum, and Bill and Jason will be great additions to the community's leadership. Together we will continue to accelerate the pace of innovation in this industry and to make datacenter technologies more open, more efficient, and more sustainable.Expanding the OCP Foundation Board
