Open Data Center

Definition - What does Open Data Center mean?

An open data center is any data center that has been designed, built, operated and managed on open and interoperable standards. It is a data center facility that works on hardware, software, network and other IT appliances and resources, all of which are based on open standards and practices.

Techopedia explains Open Data Center

An open data center primarily works around the standards and procedures developed by the open data center alliance (ODCA), which currently consists of more than 300 companies actively working on open standards for data centers. Typically, an open data center aims at building a data center that works on the principles of cloud computing. It requires building data center applications and services that can easily be integrated with other solutions to simplify management, reduce capital and operational costs, and reduce the data center's carbon footprint.
