The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) announced that Singapore-based data centre provider SpaceDC achieved OCP Ready certification for its new data centre in Jakarta, Indonesia. This is the first data centre in Asia to receive this OCP certification and demonstrates the growing awareness of creating highly efficient facilities designed for the new wave of open infrastructure deployments, OCP said.
SpaceDC’s Jakarta facility met guidelines created by the OCP Data Center Facility Project Team, and serves as a reference for data centre operators and tenants who want to understand the fundamental facility requirements to deploy OCP hardware into their IT space. Facilities that meet the OCP Ready requirements and approved by the OCP Data Center Facilities Project receive the certification as an OCP Ready facility.
Along with the facility, SpaceDC achieved ColoSolution Provider status, which is a specific designation for members who are part of the OCP reseller ecosystem. OCP ColoSolution Providers must exhibit strong technical, service and support functionalities to enable scalable deployments of OCP infrastructure.
SpaceDC is committed to lowering the environmental impact of their data centres and they have taken great care in all areas of the data centre design. From site selection to modular construction, the energy source that they’ll be using to power the facility and the recycling of waste heat, these are all aspects that will help SpaceDC achieve their mission.
SpaceDC’s OCP Ready facility is now listed on the OCP Marketplace.
