Google has also done there own server computer system. You would think that the large server hardware companies would have a better solution for the data center issues. Heat generation is a major issue in data centers. The colder climates have a real advantage.

Cool pictures! I like to see more on the system block diagram and more on the hardware related design. Is that really revolutionary?

"There are many very effecient processors based on the ARM and POWER architectures that might run their code faster and use a lot less power." Facebook is reportedly playing with ARN and even Tilera processors in their servers.

Hey Rick, I am sick of your Pre-ARM articles. For once, can EETimes write un-biased article. You even have ARM Tech conference ad in every one of your article. Talk about unbiased reporting..... Helpfulguy

A simple algorithm which automatically edits out extra exclamation marks in idiotic facebook posts could probably save them a few terabytes of storage. And thats just the beginning.

Cool science project.. until someone gets electrocuted. Metal grills serve a purpose that these junior engineers will someday "discover". I guess tearing down a product is considered innovation these days. I expected better from EETimes. I guess it's just a tabloid now. Facebook innovation? Don't make me laugh. You can make your car get better gas mileage by ripping out the seats, airbags and brakes, but don't try selling it to anyone else.
