Google has joined Open Compute Project (OCP), a five year old project founded by social network giant, Facebook to build open source data center hardware.

Google aims to help drive standardization in IT infrastructure by contributing a new rack specification that includes 48V power distribution and a new form factor to allow OCP racks to fit into their data centers. Google which kicked-off the development of 48V rack power distribution in 2010, claims that the specification was at least 30% more energy efficient and more cost effective in supporting these higher-performance systems.

Just three months back, Finnish telecoms vendor, Nokia joined the OCP project as a Gold member, to build an OCP variant of the Nokia AirFrame Data Center Solution.
