Facebook, Open Compute Project Drive Transparency By @IoT2040 | @CloudExpo [#IoT]

The Open Compute Project is a collective effort by Facebook and a number of players in the datacenter industry to bring lessons learned from the social media giant's giant IT deployment to the rest of the world.

Cloud Expo has long been the single, independent show where delegates and technology vendors can meet to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud. This year will be no different. Containers are an old concept that saw renewed life with the emergence of Docker in 2013. Then late in 2014, CoreOS shook up the cloud-computing world by announcing its own container strategy called Rocket. Meanwhile, enterprise IT heav... (more)
