Power management company Eaton today announced that has joined the Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation, a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology to efficiently support the growing demands on compute infrastructure. As a Community Level Member, Eaton will contribute its power management technology, including its ePDU G3 rack mounted power distribution units (PDUs), to helping the community achieve its mission of designing, using and enabling mainstream delivery of the most efficient designs for scalable computing.
"Eaton has a long-standing record of enabling data center scalability and energy efficiency with our power management hardware, software and services," said Joe Skorjanec, ePDU product manager, Eaton Distributed Power Solutions.
