Positronic is pleased to announce the Company has joined the Open Compute Project (OCP) as a Community Member. OCP, founded in 2011 by Facebook and other members, is a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology to efficiently support the growing demands on compute infrastructure.

Positronic, a leader in customized interconnect solutions, has been indirectly involved in the OCP project for the last several years. When working with projects like OCP, even a small design change can make a big impact in energy and cost savings. Providers are always looking to maximize performance in data center architecture, down even to the connector level.

Data Center Power Engineers have chosen Positronic power connectors, such the Scorpion series, which is one of the most versatile, modular power/signal connectors in the market. Scorpion is a popular choice for major cloud computing industry specifications because of its ability to achieve goals like those of OCP. These include: lower cost per rack, lower cost per server, optimized power utilization, and the ability to serve in an open standard where everyone can participate.

Joining the OCP as a Community Member allows Positronic to collaborate directly with design engineers on connector solutions that further achieve OCP goals and provide our expertise for the next generation of open source hardware.

Natesh Kannan, Global Product Manager at Positronic states, “OCP is pushing more services to the cloud, handling more data, and bringing connectivity to the world in a very efficient, economical and sustainable manner. Being a member of the OCP Community, Positronic strongly believes that open collaboration is the best way to provide sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions. Positronic is excited about the membership and actively participating in monthly project discussions.”
