Quanta QCT to Demo First Open Compute Battery Backup System at Open Compute Summit Next Week

Battery Backup System among more than ten OCP products on display at Quanta QCT booth, B9.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 23, 2014 /PRWeb/ – Open Compute pioneer Quanta QCT will unveil and provide live demonstrations of what will be the first Open Compute battery backup system available at the Open Compute Summit next week in San Jose.

At booth B9, visitors can see a live demo of the Quanta QCT Battery Backup System (BBS). The 1U, 21-inch Open Rack compatible design delivers a three-minute discharge, providing an ample widow for bringing datacenter generator power online during a grid-power outage. Four lithium ion battery units per 1U BBS are designed in a modular, hot-pluggable configuration. The BBS is fully integrated with the OCP Power Shelf and Bus Bar Architecture.

The Quanta QCT BBS will be available in late Q2 through channels.
Quanta QCT, the leading provider of server, storage and network products for cloud computing datacenters, was named an OCP Solution Provider in 2013. The company’s history with the Open Compute Project stretches back to 2009, when Quanta designed server boards for Facebook in a partnership that predated formation of the Open Compute Project.
