Facebook building deep storage buildings at data centers

FacebookRemember that third building that Facebook reportedly is building at its data center in Prineville, Oregon? Turns out that building isn’t a third regular data center, but a deep storage facility, according to Facebook execs on a tour of the Oregon data center. The building, which will potentially be 84,000 square feet, will be filled with disc or flash storage and will act as the “backup to the backup to the backup,” storage for the facility’s data, explained Facebook’s Ken Patchett.
