Open Compute Project

The Open Compute Project initiative was announced in April 2011 by Facebook to openly share designs of data center products.The effort came out of a redesign of Facebook's data center in Prineville, Oregon.The leader of the effort is Frank Frankovsky. After two years, it was admitted that "the new design is still a long way from live data centers."However, some aspects published were used in the Prineville center to improve the energy efficiency, as measured by the power usage effectiveness index defined by The Green Grid.Components include: Server compute nodes included one for Intel processors and one for AMD processors.
