Data Center Standards Committee

The Data Center Standards Committee is tasked with developing and maintaining the OIX-2 technical and operational standards for Data Centers. The OIX-2 standards encompass physical, operational, and open access requirements from the street directly into the data center environment, including cross connection policies, Service Level Agreements (SLAs), up-time guarantees, and more.

The goal of the standard is to capture the critical aspects necessary to support the installation of an OIX-1 compliant exchange, although it also signifies sufficient capability for other mission-critical applications and massive scale interconnection.

A second task of the Data Center Standards Committee is to evaluate Data Center requests for certification against the OIX-2 standards.

Committee Members

All of Open-IX Committees are comprised of volunteer representatives from the Global Internet community, who are coming together to create a better, safer, stronger, fairer Internet.

The expected weekly time commitment for task completion is 1-2 hours per week. It is asked that volunteers for this committee commit to a one-year term.
