Open Platforms based on Open19

Server to rack level systems on traditional 19” hardware standard

Key Features:
  • Modular “brick” building blocks
  • Powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors
  • Compute, storage and GPU capabilities on open hardware


Open19 platform, the latest addition to the open hardware community, is bringing open standards to the traditional, 19-inch data center form factor. As a leading provider of cutting-edge computing solutions, Inspur is naturally invested in this initiative to create new possibilities in the most egalitarian hardware standard.

In developing open platforms based on this common server form factor, Inspur hopes to serve a broad range of users and operators and help them to speed their adoption of open designs with minimal disruption to their existing infrastructure.
