Hacking Conventional Computing Infrastructure

Project Info – Facebook Servers. We started a project at Facebook a little over a year ago with a pretty big goal: to build one of the most efficient computing infrastructures at the lowest possible cost.We decided to honor our hacker roots and challenge convention by custom designing and building our software, servers and data centers from the ground up.The result is a data center full of vanity free servers which is 38% more efficient and 24% less expensive to build and run than other state-of-the-art data centers1.But we didn’t want to keep it all for ourselves. Instead, we decided to collaborate with the entire industry and create the Open Compute Project, to share these technologies as they evolve.
