Open Compute Project (OCP) was formed by Facebook in April 2011 as an effort to shape the hardware design for its datacenter in Prineville, Oregon. The social networking giant said its datacenter improved efficiency by 38 percent and lowered costs by 24 percent. Facebook also said it achieved a power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratio of 1.07, compared with 1.5 for its other datacenters. Kudos Facebook!
