Facebook made the server market $ 53 billion shaken by four guns
Not just an internet company or software, Facebook can also design a data server. When it comes to Facebook, we only know about the world’s most popular social network and internet coverage projects, or mobile applications like WhatsApp. But Facebook also has a project called the Open Compute Project (OCP), which is growing rapidly in the data center hardware arena. This is an open source project of Facebook, which aims to design cheaper, faster, and more environmentally friendly servers and data centers.
Recently, OCP has released four new server designs. The designs were invented by Facebook, but anyone could use it, edit it to fit into their system. Then, contact the manufacturers in the cooperation contract to produce these servers. There are currently two licensed contract manufacturers, Quanta of China and HP Enterprise. Major cloud providers such as Google and Microsoft are also taking advantage of OCP’s custom server design, customization, and integration of some of their new technologies. Apple, AT & T, Verizon, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and many other large companies also use a Facebook OCP design. Only Amazon or LinkedIn is self-designed and built their own infrastructure. Better and cheaper The OCP project is also based on Facebook’s huge storage needs. That’s because social network users are watching 100 million hours of video each day, sharing 95 million photos and clips, more than 400 million Messenger users to make video calls. That’s a huge amount of data that Facebook needs to store and process. That is why Facebook has researched and invented the new generation of servers. Facebook’s Chief Technology Officer, Gabriana Murillo, has just released four new servers in the OCP project. However, Facebook shares its server design completely free. That would have a huge impact on the $ 53 billion server market dominated by HP, Dell and Cisco. Big companies also follow the cloud trend, hiring these services instead of building their own datacenters, one of the reasons HP’s decline.
