Servers at Facebook's new data center [May. 24th, 2012|11:34 pm]
Russell Brunelle

Recently, I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in a tour of Facebook's new data center.

Here you can see several racks of their commodity 1U web servers. Note the innovative cooling system, a portion of which can be seen at the top of each rack.

I should probably also mention that none of the above is actually true: I took this picture earlier today at a Department of Fish and Wildlife salmon hatchery, which happened to be on the way to my hike. The "servers" are just trays for fertilized salmon eggs.

Did I fool you?
