Circle B for SaaS Providers
High-performance, scalable data center infrastructure for the modern SaaS provider.
SaaS providers have driven data centers forward relentlessly for two decades. To support ever-growing user bases, SaaS providers need more power, storage, and scalability than ever, forcing data center and hardware providers to innovate at an unprecedented rate.
And it’s not just about power. SaaS providers must also maximize availability, performance, and security to acquire and retain customers.
All this innovation comes at a price. Data center hardware is a huge cost center for SaaS businesses. And up to now, costs only went in one direction: up.
What if you could scale the capabilities of your data center hardware and reduce operating costs?
Maximize Power & Performance
Run your SaaS solutions on cutting-edge data center hardware, with the option to upgrade when new hardware is released.
Our hardware will run all your existing and future workloads. You can even see it in action before you buy, either remotely or in-person at our OCP Experience Center in Amsterdam.
Lower Operating Costs
Our OCP hardware uses 21” racks that allow more room for cables, simplify maintenance, and improve airflow.
That means better energy efficiency, extended hardware lifespan, and lower operating costs for your SaaS business.
Avoid Cost Spikes
With cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and GCP, SaaS providers can run into high, unexpected costs due to changes in user activity.
By hosting solutions on OCP hardware, providers can benefit from consistently lower operating costs than other hosting options, and mitigate the danger of sudden cost spikes.
Deploy & Scale Fast
Our modular OCP hardware is easy to set up and maintain. Organize, build, and rebuild racks as needed to support your SaaS business while saving on maintenance costs.
OCP hardware is faster and easier to scale than traditional 19” infrastructure, so your data center won’t hold you back.
Ensure Security & Compliance
Our servers have no vendor lock-in or black box firmware. Get full control of your rack from the ground up, so you can ensure maximum security for your data and applications.
Hosting data or services across multiple jurisdictions? No problem. You have full control and can easily ensure compliance with all your regulatory requirements.
Invest in Proven, Reliable Hardware
Hyperscalers like Facebook and Google have used OCP hardware for a decade because—in addition to reducing costs—it’s high-spec and easy to scale.
OCP hardware is also the most reliable data center hardware available, designed specifically for the needs of hyperscale SaaS providers. By reducing heat and improving airflow, OCP racks protect hardware from early failure, reducing the risk of unplanned outages.
OCP hardware was developed by Facebook starting in 2009 to help control costs, reduce energy consumption, and support a massive influx of customers and data. The project was a huge success. The new infrastructure was drastically more energy and cost-efficient to build and run.
Since then, SaaS giants like Google, IBM, and Oracle have jumped on board.
