Facebook's open hardware chief Frank Frankovsky on why it won't go back to traditional mass market servers and how open sourcing datacentre design is helping it build more efficient and reliable server farms.
To be sold in mid-2012, new Moonshot-powered systems touted to reduce power consumption and real estate in data centers by 89 percent and 94 percent, respectively, says IT vendor.
Facebook is choosing to design and build its own servers since offerings from the likes of Dell and HP just aren't good enough.
Servers based on ARM processors are unlikely to ship in volume until 2015, according to the president of the chip design company."We firmly believe this is going to happen.
The social network has launched the Open Compute Project to open source the design specifics of its servers and overall datacentre architecture

Facebook discloses a wealth of information about the design of its new data center in rural Oregon and contributes much of the IP involving racks, servers and power architecture to an open forum in the hopes of generating an ecosystem of suppliers to provide future equipment.
It's a tough ask, basing a business on fresh air -- but that's what APC is now doing.After years of selling its InfrastruXure range of datacentre products, which plug together to provide an enclosed cooling design for rack-mounted servers, APC is now saying that fresh air is what you need to cool your computers.

Azul Systems makes corporate Java compute appliances — big boxes of custom multicore processors that run Java virtual machines orders of magnitude faster and at hugely less power than can standard x86 servers. There's a lot of very clever hardware and software design in there, and for the past few years the company has kept quiet about most of it.
IBM remains a solid choice of server vendor, and this IBM/Lenovo server is a good rack-mount platform, albeit not quite as good as some of the competition.
One of the first home servers to arrive, from Hewlett-Packard, will be based on a design from AMD
HP's newest c-Class blade chassis 16-blade system has brought energy efficiency design to a whole new level in server infrastructure. The unique design allows the system to shut down up to 5 of the 6 2250 watt power supplies to maintain a peak load on the remaining power supply which translates to more than 90% power supply efficiency. If power supply redundancy is needed and configured on the chassis, it will leave 2 of the power supplies on in case one of them should fail. This would translate to less than 140 watts of average power consumption for each of the 16 2-socket Intel or AMD based servers while they are operating at lower utilization levels.
Ann Livermore, executive vice president of Hewlett-Packard's Technology Solutions Group, introduces the BladeSystem C-Class -- a new chassis design for the company's blade server line. Livermore introduced HP Thermal Logic for power and cooling, HP Virtual Connect to improve virtualization and HP Insight Control to simplify management of the servers.
Dell has belatedly joined its competitors in offering own-design blade servers with the launch in Paris of the PowerEdge 1855.With shipments of blade servers due to double each year until 2008, according to industry analysts IDC, Dell is keen to take a share of the increased enterprise spend.
Dell's introduction of its first own-design blade servers will shake up the market - to the detriment of HP and IBM, say observers
Although Dell is one of Intel's tightest partners in server design, it won't be joining the chipmaker and IBM in an effort to standardize blade servers, an analyst firm predicted.
The two rivals, which have servers that are united by a common processor design and operating system, are in discussions that could mean a tighter alliance.
The company plans next year to come out with a new line of microprocessors for dense servers that will wed cutting-edge design concepts with a chip from the 1990s.
Big Blue is set to unsheathe its first blade servers, and with them a strategy for applying the blade concept to the design of many other products.
The tech giants are joining forces in a multiyear project to design new super-slim "blade" servers, the companies plan to announce Tuesday.
The chip giant and ServerWorks, the chief maker of chipsets for Intel-based servers, can't agree on an important design issue--and that's bad news for HP, Dell and other server makers.
