Excitement for Open Compute is growing among tech vendors and IT users. The project just added more than a dozen new members including storage-oriented companies like EMC, Fusion-io, Hitachi, Applied Micro, ARM and Sandisk. All told, some 50 organizations are part of the project, Frankovsky says.

All designs that they contribute to the project become open source, meaning that anyone can take them, use them, modify them to build their own servers.

OCP doesn’t necessarily spell doom for server makers like HP and Dell, although it does take design control out of their hands. But it could be a brand new market for them, too. Both HP and Dell are getting in front of this and are participating with the project.
