The AMS01 data center is the first in Continental Europe to receive the certification from this group. This achievement signifies AMS01’s ability to deliver the enhanced flexibility and performance of OCP solutions in addition to its existing state-of-the-art technology, high power densities and robust energy efficiency. This further builds on maincubes’ history of dedication to driving OCP adoption and innovation in the data center environment. AMS01 is currently home to the OCP Experience Center, which helps CIOs, CTOs, IT managers and data center managers understand the impact of OCP designs on their facilities.
