Open Compute Racks: Are We Going to Use Them in Our Data Centers?

Facebook’s Open Compute Project is, on the surface, specifications for servers, racks, cooling and power distribution planned for its data centers. Somewhat surprisingly, the project continues to evolve and produce more specifications. In my view, it’s a business initiative that drives cheaper procurement of data center hardware assets for Facebook. Sure, Facebook hopes other companies will use this as a jumping-off point for their own data center initiatives.
