The Open Compute Project Foundation continues to provide a platform for individuals and organizations to share their intellectual property (IP) with others and encourage the IT industry to innovate. We welcome innovation on all levels from all sources, holding high standards for only proven and consumable products and services. As the Foundation prepares for its annual Summit in March in Santa Clara, California, the focus will be adopting OCP hardware and how users can deploy their software solutions on OCP-Accepted™ and OCP-Inspired™ hardware, regardless of the rack and power types  their data center requires.
