Open Compute has had a revolutionary impact on data center design, offering many simplicity and cost saving benefits. To become more mainstream, we believe critical questions need to be answered about the implications of OCP on the upstream power infrastructure. Can data centers still achieve Tier 3 redundancy? How do I support traditional and OCP loads in the same data center? This presentation will address these and other questions, and propose a series of simplified architectures to support OCP. We will discuss redundancy, availability, and flexibility implications, as well as present a cost analysis. Schneider Electric embraces the spirit of OCP by openly sharing this analysis and making these simplified reference designs freely available.
