Radisys’ CG-OpenRack-19 Spec Accepted by Open Compute Project

Radisys announced that its CG-OpenRack-19 specification has been accepted by Open Compute Project Foundation.  The design is a scalable carrier-grade rack level system that integrates high performance compute, storage and networking in a standard rack.

Radisys said the specification provides a high level of modularity and simplicity by defining interoperability requirements, thereby reducing system set-up time and operator costs. Radisys’ contribution addresses key requirements needed to extend the base Open Rack model into telecom environments to accommodate the needs of existing central offices, including physical conditions, content/workload elements, management needs and networking/interconnect options. CG-OpenRack-19 promotes an agile approach to creating deployable system instantiations. It is based on a standard 19” rack width to leverage traditional telecom common equipment practices, while also being well suited for new virtualized data centers.

“Service providers are transitioning their network infrastructure from closed proprietary platforms to next-gen data centers built with open source software and hardware components,” said Andrew Alleman, CTO, Radisys. “Radisys is actively contributing to open systems and networks, with open source contributions in both software and hardware. With OCP, we saw a great approach and technology that is bigger than just one company. We worked closely with service providers and other vendors on the CG-OpenRack-19 contribution to bring a carrier-grade version of OCP Open Rack hardware to service provider networks. We are pleased that the specification is OCP-ACCEPTED™ and already achieving traction in service provider data centers.”
