|Facebook Open Sources Its Servers And Data Centers by Onos55: 3:28am On Apr 08, 2011|
Facebook has added another dimension to its march towards total domination of the social networking space and to the concept of 'Open Source' - it has just shared details of its server and datacentre designs, just like it did with its software code, and just like Yahoo did with it's data centre design a while ago. It released many details, down to processing power, output consumption and actual data centre design model.
I think the key here is to note that Facebook appears determined to encourage the adoption of web-scale computing by all. On the surface it would appear that Facebook might be feeding the 'competition' with 'ammo' - but methinks it simply speaks of just how confident the compay is of it's domination of the industry.
