BigFoot Storage Object Open


We got it: the first European solution that fits the Open-Compute-Standard! The Open Compute Project ( is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of infrastructure technology and energy consumption through continued evolution in energy and material efficiency. Therefore the racks went from 19“ regular size to 21“ (Open Rack) to attain a better density.

With Open BigFoot® Storage Object we achieved that aim: With incredible 54 HDDs in only 2 Open-RU we provide the highest density in the worldwide!
