The Open Compute Project was started in 2011 to make datacenters more efficient, and help engineers collaborate, share their innovations, and develop common solutions to industry problems, faster. Recently, what's driving our biggest sources of inefficiency and demand has begun to shift. AI, machine learning, video transcode, and advances in network and data fabrics are exposing new problems and opportunities. Coincidentally, many of our systems are changing in fundamental ways. Our industry's engineers are working on these problems, but often in ways that fragment our resources and capacity to innovate, creating new forms of “Gratuitous Differentiation.” With our announcements in 2019, Facebook is seeking to provide platforms for new innovation around which our industry's engineers and other resources can converge. It is our hope that we can continue to grow a mass of developers towards these platforms, so that we can share our innovations, and you can share ours. Let's tackle these new challenges—new platforms, engineering efficiency, and datacenter efficiency—together.
