OCP Ready Data Center
As an OCP Ready data center, maincubes AMS01 delivers higher power densities in kW/rack, enhanced flexibility and performance, and improved energy efficiency, in line with Open Compute Project directives. maincubes builds on its promise to drive the adoption of OCP and innovation for data centers. The datacenter in Amsterdam Schiphol-Rijk is also the location of the European OCP Experience Center, where CIOs, CTOs, ICT managers, and data center managers can test and experience for themselves the benefits of OCP principles for their organizations.
DCspine and maincubes declare to have a very complementary vision. maincubes positions itself as a carrier neutral data center with a strong focus on Open Compute. Their Open Compute principles would fit seamlessly with the Open Networking principles which DCspine is based on. The principles of both these movements have strong focus on the seamless interconnection between different parties, creating increased flexibility, efficiency, and scalability and allowing customers to achieve better performance and faster innovation.
DCspine can be seen as a ‘Virtual Meet Me Room’ for all connected data centers. Some examples of other data centers in the Netherlands and Belgium where DCspine is present include Greenhouse Datacenters, NorthC Datacenters, Iron Mountain, Bytesnet, SmartDC, Dataplace, Equinix, Digital Realty, Cellnex, Interxion Brussels, LCL Antwerp and Diegem, Switch Datacenters, and others.
