Open Source and Data Centres: The next Internet of Things Frontier
- 30 minute talk
Data Centres are one of the last remaining holdouts of proprietary and vendor lock-in software.
oBIX (Open Building Information Xchange) is a focused effort by industry leaders and associations working toward creating a standard XML and Web Services guideline to facilitate the exchange of information between intelligent buildings, enable enterprise application integration and bring forth true systems integration.
By adopting this open standard and fostering an open-source community implementing this standard, NEXTDC is enabling customers and consumers to bridge the gap between proprietary Internet of Things devices and the owners and consumers of this thermal, power and environmental data.
