gnu let us know about Facebook releasing specifications for their data center infrastructure as an open hardware project. They’ve released detailed electrical and mechanical data for everything from the server motherboards to the data center power distribution system. Digging further reveals that the specifications are licensed under the new Open Web Foundation Agreement which appears to be an actual open license.
