Scoble interviews Graham Weston about Facebook's OpenCompute

Filed in by Angela Bartels | April 8, 2011 9:11 am

Yesterday, we announced our participation in the Open Compute Project[1], an open-source community that will accelerate the innovation of next-generation data center infrastructure and hardware.  To kick-start the project, Facebook[2] is contributing their specifications and designs for an impressive new energy-efficient data center.

This project will enable innovative collaboration in the areas of infrastructure efficiency, energy conservation and new technology integration.  This is a big opportunity for Rackspace and our customers as it’s aligned with our commitment to open standards.
