UL, the global safety science leader, has joined the Open Compute Project (OCP) at the highest tier level and will contribute its technical knowledge and experience to help further the cooperative development of resiliency, utilization and efficiency of data center and enterprise technology.
UL aims to help improve the stability and performance of data centers by providing transparency and trust throughout the value chain of component, product and system manufacturers – from the installation, integration and commissioning of equipment to the ongoing asset maintenance and performance.
Founded in 2011, the OCP is a collaborative community geared toward reimagining the design of server, storage, networking and other data center hardware with the goal of driving scalable computing through sharing of information and technical specifications. Additional member organizations include industry leaders such as AT&T, Cisco, Ericsson, Facebook, Google and Microsoft.
"UL has been a significant contributor to Open Compute members for decades," said Bill Carter, chief technology officer, OCP.
