Chatsworth Products Joins Open19 Foundation
September 12, 2017
Chatsworth Products (CPI) recently joined the Open19 Foundation—a community of industry leaders working together to solve data center problems efficiently and cost effectively.
The Open19 Foundation was created in May 2017 by Flex, GE Digital, LinkedIn, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and VaporIO. The focus of the organization is to build, and engage a community of system suppliers, integrators and operators to collectively solve problems as if they are one, giant data center.
The organization is built around the idea that anything can be integrated into a 19-inch rack with three main, core components: brick cage, power shelf and network switch. Open19 Foundation is defining a cross-industry common server form factor, producing a flexible and economica data center and edge solution for operators of all sizes.
“Industry forums are a proven way to add value to our industry by defining and sharing best practices. The Open19 Foundation is focused on an important industry challenge—how to make rack equipment more uniform and scalable for businesses of all sizes. CPI is very excited to be involved with this effort. We think it will lead to better rack solutions for our industry,” stated Dennis VanLith, Sr. Director of Global Product Management for CPI.
