The company has announced the formation of Open19, a project in which LinkedIn will work with partners to develop a the new standard.

With Open19 LinkedIN expects lower cost per rack, lower cost per server, optimized power utilization, and (eventually) an open standard that everyone can contribute to and participate in.

This project however is similar to the Open Compute Project (OCP), an initiative that Facebook established in 2011 and that has since received participation from Apple, Microsoft, Google, and several vendors.

Open19 has sofar obtained partnerships with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), Hyve, Mellanox, and Wiwynn, among others. All four of those companies have done work with the OCP.
