Facebook Opens Up Its Hardware Secrets


Just weeks before switching on a massive, super-efficient data center in
rural Oregon, Facebook is giving away the designs and specifications to the
whole thing online. In doing so, the company is breaking a long-established
unwritten rule for Web companies: don't share the secrets of your
server-stuffed data warehouses


Bruce Williams

Concepts, like individuals, have their histories and are just as incapable
withstanding the ravages of time as are individuals. But in and through all
they retain a kind of homesickness for the scenes of their childhood.
Soren Kierkegaard
