Vapor Contributes Open Data Center Runtime Environment to Open Compute Project

At the Open Compute Project Summit this week, startup Vapor announced a new open-source specification designed to help manage data center environments.

The new technology is the Open DCRE (Data Center Runtime Environment) which is an open source platform for data center workload automation. Open DCRE can be used to monitor environmental characteristics and power usage in a data center. On top of Open DCRE is the Vapor Core (Core Operating Runtime Environment) that can be used to drive Big Data analytics information about data center operations.
