The 10 Coolest Servers Of 2013


Hyve: Newcomer For OCP

Hyve Solutions was formed as a division of distributor Synnex as a way to develop data center infrastructure products that compete with several Asian ODM vendors that sell server and storage equipment to Web-scale companies like Facebook, Yahoo and Google.

Hyve in 2013 unveiled a series of servers based on the Open Compute Project (OCP) specifications developed for large-scale data centers by Facebook.

The new Hyve Solutions 1500 Series of servers uses similar building blocks as existing OCP designs but can be installed in a standard 19-inch rack. That, Hyve said, allows the new servers to be installed in existing racks without the need to retrofit an existing data center.

Hyve's new 19-inch OCP V2 servers allow 28 two-node, 1.5U-high servers to fit into a standard 44U rack.
