Default Facebook Data Center

Does anyone have information on the FaceBook data center? Specs or other information? I am just curious as I imagine their setup must be something considering how many people use FaceBook.

Try this: http://www.google.com/search?q=facebook+data+center. The interesting thing about Facebook's recent efforts is that they have open-sourced their design.

They have more than one data center, of course. I think they are all pretty state-of-the-art and their most recent addition is a more energy efficient data center. I believe that is located in Oregon.

I believe they have 3 different data centers. They try to make them highly secure, of course. I believe that their most recent data center is the most energy efficient.

Cloud technologies power some of Internet’s most well-known sites—Picasa, Gmail, Facebook, and Zynga, just to name a few—and cloud companies are striving to make the computer processing behind these sites as energy efficient as possible.

Well as I have heard so there are lot of em involving in the security and risk management for the Facebook. It just divides between lot of companies so that the security becomes tight.
