Facebook expands its OpenBMC management software to support its latest servers

10431445_748146011942654_5424362186535308901_nFacebook today is announcing that it has expanded the capabilities of OpenBMC, the open-source software that the social networking company developed to help it control certain aspects of its data center hardware. When Facebook introduced OpenBMC — which is essentially a full-on Linux distribution to deal with hardware components such as sensors — in March, the company said the tool could controlFacebook’s Wedge custom networking switches. But Facebook has since gone further and added support for Facebook’s efficient Yosemite servers.
