Open Compute Project

Specs & Designs

Our first step for the Open Compute Project is releasing the specifications and mechanical drawings. The second step is working with the community to improve them.
Please take a look, tell us what we did wrong and join us in working together to make every data center more efficient.

Below you will find technical specifications and CAD drawings (DXF and SolidWorks parts/assemblies) for the Open Compute Project server components. To view the CAD files, you will need to unzip them, and use the free eDrawings viewer for OS X or Windows.

Server Technology

Open Compute servers are designed to be efficient, inexpensive and easy to service. They’re also vanity free, with no extra plastic and significantly fewer parts than traditional servers.

  • Chassis

    The Open Compute Project chassis is designed to accommodate the other components in a server, including the custom motherboard and power supply. Overall it is vanity free, has…

Data Center Technology

Designed in tandem with our servers, the data center maximizes mechanical performance and thermal and electrical efficiency. It accepts 277 volts of AC, so more energy makes it from the grid to the data center to server components.
