Facebook teams up with tech firms on Open Compute Project

Posted on Friday, April 08 2011 @ 21:15:53 CEST by

Reuters reports Facebook wants to get in on computer hardware as well. The news agency writes the social networking site has teamed up with HP, Dell, AMD, and Intel to launch the "open compute project", an initiative that aims to offer specifications and designs for more power-efficient computers that are specifically geared toward running Internet services.
"What we found over time is that a lot of the stuff that the mass manufacturers put out wasn't exactly in line with what we needed and what other social apps needed," Zuckerberg said at a media event at Facebook's Palo Alto, California headquarters on Thursday.

By sharing design specifications, he said he hoped to increase availability and demand for the specialized servers.

Dell will build servers based on those technical specifications, while Synnex Corp (SNX.N) will act as overall vendor for the systems. The technology will power servers in the social network's first custom-built data centre, in Prineville, Oregon. Until now, Facebook has leased data centres for its infrastructure.
