Data Center Optimization at Facebook

A short but interesting article talking about Facebook’s data center optimizations:

With our new strategies in place, within one of our data centers we’re saving almost 2.5 million kilowatt hours annually, and reducing our energy demand by 276 kilowatts. In economic terms, this translates to an annual cost savings of almost $230,000. Environmentally, we’ve reduced the amount of greenhouse gases produced by 967 metric tons annually, which is the equivalent to the emissions of 332 cars or the electricity usage of 211 homes, using EPA calculations.
