The Open19 Inception

The Open19 Foundation started as a Concept in 2016 by LinkedIn, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and VaporIO looking for ways to create a community that will enable a common optimize data center and edge solutions enabling efficiency and flexibility.

The Open19 Community

LinkedIn and their partners decided to build and engage a community around the Open19 Concept as this would create much more value and potentially create a market shift: a collection of companies would collectively solve data center problems as if they were one mega data center. This was the start of the Open19 Foundation.

The Open19 Foundation

Today, the Open19 Foundation is a fast-growing community of companies from different parts of the data center and edge eco-system from components supplies through system suppliers and integrators to data center operators.
