Open Compute Project

Open Compute Project
Hacking Conventional Computing Infrastructure We started a project at Facebook over two years ago with a pretty big goal: to build one of the most efficient computing infrastructures at the lowest possible cost. We decided to honor our hacker roots and challenge convention by custom designing and building our software, servers and data centers from the ground up – and then share these technologies as they evolve. The result is a data center full of vanity free servers which is 38% more efficient and 24% less expensive to build and run than other state-of-the-art data centers. Why Open Hardware? By releasing Open Compute Project technologies as open hardware, our goal is to develop servers and data centers following the model traditionally associated with open source software projects.

Download - Facebook Unveils Custom Servers, Facility Design A look at the blue-lit servers inside the cold aisle of the new Facebook data center in Prineville, Oregon. Facebook today unveiled details of its new technology infrastructure, which features custom-built servers, racks and UPS units that will fill its new data center in Prineville, Oregon. The project is Facebook’s first company-built facility, and is optimized from the two-story structure right down to the servers to reflect the company’s vision for energy efficient data center operations. “Being able to design more efficient servers, both in terms of cost and power usage, is a big part of enabling us to build the features we add,” said Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, in a briefing in Palo Alto, California.

Dangerous Prototypes · Prototype: Web platform This is an old version, see the latest version on the documentation wiki. The Dangerous Prototypes web platform is a tiny server designed for networked hacks where a full PC is inconvenient. There’s lots of interesting projects that bridge the internet to microcontrollers, but most of them have a PC in the middle to handle network stuff.

Renosite (code name: CDEOp) Please take the time to read and understand the reasoning behind this product. This site is dedicated to a special project that has been missing in the computer industry. Once this project started other similar devices started showing up on the market, but to this day this one is the only open-source version out there. The development has started and stopped over the last couple of years.

strobit - Strobit Wireless Widget Open Hardware Project Welcome to the Strobit Wireless Widget Project. The project aims to is to create a compact, low cost, battery powered, wireless enabled Arduino that is Open (as in Open Hardware). All Documentation is available via the wiki. See RoadMap documentation for further details. Images The Evolution of Privacy on Facebook About Facebook is a great service.

Cerowrt CeroWrt is a project built on the OpenWrt firmware to resolve the endemic problems of bufferbloat in home networking today, and to push forward the state of the art of edge networks and routers. Projects include proper IPv6 support, tighter integration with DNSSEC, and most importantly, reducing bufferbloat in both the wired and wireless components of the stack. The CeroWrt 3.10 series of builds include the following features and capabilities: Linux 3.10 kernel. Many of the fixes for bufferbloat are being implemented in this 3.10 kernel, so we are tracking these developments carefully.

So we spend it on things that will give you more bang for buck. and will always win our cost/benefit analysis over superbowl ads, junkets or ego-gratifying pep-rallies. Customer Profile #1: You already know all about DNS and you know who we are. Bufferbloat I received the following question today from Ralph Droms. I include an edited version of my response to Ralph.
