Pentair: open source rack-level hardware systems for carrier-grade data centers

Pentair with its Schroff brand, and Radisys announce the development of open source rack-level hardware systems specifically designed to meet the next-generation requirements of the telecom industry. The resulting open source hardware design leverages Open Compute Project (OCP) principles, with optimizations for Telco Central Offices and service provider-oriented data centers. The joint design innovations meet the requirements of the OCP accepted CG-OpenRack-19 specification.

Communications service providers are transitioning their networks from traditional Central Offices to virtualized data centers in order to meet demand for real-time service delivery while saving capital and operating expense. This migration from purpose-built systems to software-based applications running on commercially available infrastructure is driving a broader ecosystem that is increasingly using open source software and open hardware solutions. The Radisys and Pentair collaboration has resulted in Radisys’ DCEngine product offering, which integrates Schroff’s ServCite open rack-scale hardware solution, enabling service providers with the infrastructure to deliver an agile software-driven approach to deploying new services quickly.
