Facebook Posts Photos of Prineville Project
April 1st, 2010 By: Rich Miller
Can a data center have fans? It can if it’s the new Facebook data center in Prineville, Oregon, which has its own fan page on Facebook. The Facebook data center team is providing regular updates on its construction progress at the Prineville facility, including information on its hiring of local contractors. The latest update includes more than 30 photos of the construction site. The photos don’t provide any insight into the design just yet, but the Facebook team is promising more to come.
Despite the history of secrecy around data center location and design, we’ve seen a growing number of recent projects document their construction progress on blogs and social media. The trend may have started with Australia’s Pipe Networks, which documented its effort to build a server room in 60 days. The latest example is the Data Center Builder blog at PhoenixNAP, which provides regular photos as well as time-lapse videos set to music. Know of any other examples? Share them in the comments.
We’re a UK colocation provider and keep our blog and twitter feed well stocked with images and videos from our datacentre fit out programmes.
Check out the following link for a behind the scenes look at us fitting out our 3MVA Centro facility from an empty shell to live customer hosting in under 6 months:
Keep up the great work!
I regularly post photos of data centers on my website as I discover them.
No physical addresses are provided only City and State.
This is a component of showing the locational and economic development impact of data centers in the US. I would welcome the public to add information to the website anytime or contact me with the information at http://www.datacentersites.net
Thanks for your great reporting on the industry!
