European OCP Experience Center

In Europe, an OCP Experience Center is located in Amsterdam Schiphol. The fully functional OCP environment is live at the Amsterdam AMS01 colocation facility of European data center operator maincubes. The OCP Experience Center is available as a demo center, but can also be used to test new ‘OCP Accepted’ and ‘OCP Inspired’ data center environments and telco solutions.

The aim of this European OCP Experience Center is to help CIOs, CTOs, IT managers and data center managers fully understand the impact of OCP designs on their facilities. The center also enables them to test specific OCP-based solutions relevant to their IT environment.
