The Open Compute Project (OCP) and Open Data Center Alliance (ODC) formed an agreement to collaborate in whichOCP to get its hardware and designs in front of the 300-plus members of the ODCA so they can evaluate, adopt, and innovate on them.

The collaboration will deepen over time, and we should have more details to share at the upcoming Open Compute Project Summit in New York on October 27, 2011. To register, visit
