Hyve Solutions Corporation has announced its support of the Open Compute Project’s compute, storage, and networking solutions by offering Open Rack v2, Leopard, Honey Badger, and Wedge products to scale data center customers.

The details of the different product offerings are:

  • Open Rack v2 increases the weight limit from 950kg to 1250kg to allow for higher compute and storage density within a single rack and complies with Open Rack 1.0.
  • The Leopard compute sled replaces Winterfell and updates the platform to support the latest Intel Xeon® E5-2600v3 series “Haswell” processors and high-speed DDR4 memory.
  • Honey Badger is a light-weight compute module that works in Open Vault Storage (Knox). By leveraging the Open Vault platform, Honey Badger turns Knox from a JBOD into a cost-effective standalone storage server.
  • Finally, Wedge is a custom-designed switch designed to replace high-capacity spine switches that handle the bulk of traffic within data centers.

Prototype hardware will be available to view at OCP Summit VI and will soon be available for customer testing.

“As a final integration point for Facebook’s OCP solutions, we’re excited to be a key source for the latest compute, storage and networking solutions to the market,” said Steve Ichinaga, president, Hyve Solutions. “The Open Compute Project continues to evolve, promoting significant enhancements to both performance and efficiency in the data center, and we at Hyve Solutions are committed to providing these innovative solutions to the broader marketplace.”

“We are continuously looking for ways for the OCP community members to achieve great efficiencies in their data centers and are excited these latest innovations are being brought to market by Hyve Solutions,” said Frank Frankovsky, president and chairman of Open Compute Project Foundation. “We have always believed that by opening up specifications, the community benefits not only from those designs but will create new efficiencies themselves.”
