What is OC P?

19’’ form factor has been a world standard for hardware servers since the birth of modern telecommunication. With the growth of the GAFAs, as massive users of hardware, a new question has emerged: what if we created a new standard to address new challenges such as consumption, density, maintenance, or flexibility?

Meta, with this question in mind, initiated the Open Compute Project (OCP) by 2011.

The Open Compute Project is a collaborative community, focuses on rethinking the IT principles and redesigning hardware technology to support the growing demand for computing infrastructure efficiently.

The OCP follows the spirit of software open source communities adapted to hardware. The members aim to share the best possible designs to answer modern needs with the most suitable solution.

With a touch of “Zero Bullshit”, the OCP based hardware offers three significant benefits:

  • Much more flexibility and performance,
  • Drastically lower costs,
  • Lower energy consumption.

2CRSi x O CP

The customer experience has always been at the heart of our mission

That's why our company started by doing custom-made servers: to be able to offer "out of the box" designs that just suits the actual market needs, merging with OCP goals. Convinced by the mindset, we joined the OCP community in 2018 as a Platinum member. 

The 2CRSi team is actively involved in OCP Rack & Power, Advanced Cooling, HPC, Server, and Storage project groups. 

This involvement in the community enables 2CRSi to design solutions based on the OCP standards with unique 2CRSi designs, to go even further in performance and energy consumption.

Our contributions to OCP

2CRSi group, have been a member of the Open Compute Project community since 2018, and our values of openess, innovation and sustainability are a perfect compliment to one another.

2CRSi's OCtoPus range

The OCtoPus range is a new generation of high density 21” servers designed by 2CRSi, and which are based on the principles shared by the Open Compute Project community.

The OCtoPus servers from 2CRSi offer a broad list of key advantages such as optimized power and optimized cooling, and it also offers centralized 12VDC powershelf instead of individual PSU on 19’’ for an easier maintenance thanks to hot-pluggable power supply units and servers with a service ability from the front.

Best profitability, highest performance, higher flexibility

What if you could get the best compute power from your clusters while reducing your costs to update and maintain them? While standard server architectures reach their limits, new technologies and approaches enable us to reach a new level of efficiency.

Compatible with 3 cooling technologies

All our 21'' OCtoPus servers can be cooled with the technology that suits you best. 

Either air cooling, direct liquid cooling or immersion cooling can be used to maintain a perfect temperature.

Optimized CAPEX & OPEX

The OCtoPus combines the best advantages of OCP architectures with unique R&D innovation from 2CRSi and new technologies from its strategic partners.

Supercharged density level

Our larger 21’’ form factor allows you to push internal density to the next level.

  • 21” form factor allows more flexibility compared to 19’’,
  • Greater server, storage and network capacity,
  • Space optimization,
  • Modular solutions.

Maintenance made quick and easy

  • Rectifiers, fans, and servers are hot-pluggable,
  • Front Data cables & LED indicators,
  • Tool-free maintenance,
  • Easy access design - serviceability from the front,
  • Power modules are redundant and hot-swappable,
  • Improved MTBF thanks to less PSU and robust fans.

Dramatically increased reliability

  • Servers downtime is reduced,
  • Fans & power supplies are relocated & aggregated,
  • Power supplies are redundant.

Optimized power

  • Centralized powershelf instead of individual PSU in 19’’ permits higher power per rack,

  • More efficient on power consumption.

What makes our OCtoPus servers so unique?

A deep look into our 21" server designs

All our servers are designed, customized and produced in house to meet your needs and provide the best performances.

Our R&D department innovates with unique mechanics and electronics to allow for the best integration of the latest technologies available on the market.

Designed for optimal heat dissipation, all server configurations can be adapted to our three cooling systems (structure may vary according to cooling system chosen).

OCtoPus: certified by the Solar Impulse Foundation since October 21

To address sustainability challenges while enabling economic growth Bertrand Piccard, serial explorer, initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse has identified with its Foundation, 1000+ clean and profitable solutions including the OCtoPus server solution since October 2021.

We share this exact same vision of a sustainable future within the IT space and our teams thrive every day to deliver end-to-end energy-efficient and environmentally friendly computing solutions. This is our reason to be, our value proposition behind OCtoPus.
