AT&T, Verizon join Facebook-led Data Center Group
More bang for the buck when it comes to data center gear. Mobile phone carriers are feeling the pain as more people watch their favorite movies and TV shows on their smartphones. One way AT&T and Verizon are responding to that huge appetite for data is by experimenting with new open source softwaretechnologies that are typically created by researchers and volunteers and made available for free. Those technologies gives data center operators more flexibility for less money.
