Facebook to publish storage design

Facebook has announced plans to disclose the design behind its new energy-efficient data centre

Social networking giant Facebook has announced plans to disclose the design behind its new energy-efficient data centre.

Under the Open Compute Project, the company will publicly release specifications and mechanical drawings of the servers at its facility in Prineville, Oregon, which Facebook claims use 38% less power than existing data centres.

Data centres use huge amounts of electricity to run computer equipment and keep it cool.

Environmental group Greenpeace has estimated that the total global energy consumed by them will have reached 2 trillion kw/h by 2020.

According to Facebook, the new project hopes to help the industry cut its power consumption.

The new initiative is the first among web giants, as other firms including Google, Twitter and Amazon still have their designs under wraps.  

Jonathan Heiliger, vice president of technical operations at Facebook, said that it's time to stop "treating data centres like Fight Club" and not talking about them.
