HP's newest workstation follows the DNA of its 2009 Z series launch, with finned design, top handles and aluminium chassis intact. HP sent us the third-biggest child in the family, the Z800, to spend a bit of time with.
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.
Usually tucked under the desk in a tiny cubicle, the humble workstation gets no love when it comes to industrial design. But the last bastion of the beige box may be getting a rather nice face lift, courtesy of Dell, if some images found on the Internet and supplied to Engadget are the real deal.

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.
