Amir Michael FacebookCollaboration Summit 2012 Amir Michael, manager of systems engineering at Facebook and a key player in the company’s Open Compute Project (OCP), used his opening keynote at the sixth annual Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit to decry the current state of server-management code.
