Facebook. Server. What? Read on McDuff!
Knowing what I know about hardware and infrstructure, its no wonder that social media giant Facebook would be in the server design business. After all, when you have more than a billion people knocking on the door multiple times a week, you can’t afford to call HP or Dell and order a couple of new servers. These things reside in places called farms and require massive amounts of power and then cooling because they get really hot – those processors do.
Fascinating read. Wave of the future!
