|Servers at Facebook's new data center

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?
