Live From Facebook HQ: A New Approach To Data Centers

April 7th, 2011 04:21 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m sitting in Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, where the company has invited dozens of press and members of the tech community — I’ve spotted nametags with ‘Apple’ and ‘Paypal’ on them, among many others — for a special event. Unlike many of Facebook’s past events, this one isn’t consumer-focused. Instead, it’s all about infrastructure.

The invitation to the event says that they’ll be giving us “a behind-the-scenes look at the latest technology powering Facebook”. And we’re hearing that it will include information on how Facebook is building out highly efficient data centers — and that it plans to open source its technology.

I’ll be live-blogging the event below.

Mark Zuckerberg has taken the stage. Today they’re going to be announcing the “The Open Compute Project”.
