Facebook new data centre

Facebook will be putting ARM based servers in their upcoming Oregon data centre.

What does this mean for the general Facebook user? Nothing at this point, rather Intel will be watching carefully and holding their breath.

If Facebook's plans go well, we may see a dramatic drop in prices.

  2. What will it mean for FaceBook users? They'll make Zuckerberg slightly richer.

    And what do FaceBook users want anyhow?

    Still...I think this facility will be impressive based on the powerhouse FaceBook has become.
