At Facebook, sharing and collaborating are in our DNA. We know that we, as a company — and humanity as a whole — can achieve much more in partnership than going it alone.
So when we engineered the most efficient data center on Earth, we wanted to share the designs with the world. We launched the Open Compute Project (OCP), with the aim of creating an open-source movement within the hardware and data center industry that would bring about the same kind of rapid innovation the world has seen in open source software. Today hundreds of companies from Goldman Sachs to Apple to Microsoft are part of the OCP community, which collaboratively strives to make infrastructure technology more efficient and scalable. The progress we’ve made together and the impact Open Compute has had could never have come from just one company.
