Thermal design exploration for the Open Compute Project

6 January, 2016


The Open Compute Project Foundation is tackling a big challenge: how to scale computing infrastructure in the most efficient and economical way possible.

The Foundation, founded by Facebook, is fostering a rapidly growing community of engineers around the world whose mission is to design and enable the delivery of the most efficient server, storage and data centre hardware designs for scalable computing.

The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is one such organization that is involved in the Open Compute Project, investigating new cooling strategies to improve the thermal design of the Open Compute Project's Intel-based server.
