facebook fourth data center now online

Hi friends,this post is about the release of new data center by facebook .Facebook were already have data centers at Prineville, Forest City, and Lulea and now its their fourth data center.


What Altoona data center manager says about the release of data center?

He says,

We're excited to announce that our new data center in Altoona, Iowa, is officially online and serving live traffic. Along with our Prineville, Forest City, and Lulea data centers, Altoona is now one of the cornerstones of the global infrastructure that brings Facebook to you every day.
This is the fastest we've ever completed a first building at one of our sites, and we owe a lot of that to the people of Iowa. More than 950,000 hours have already been logged in the construction of the facility, and we have an average of 450 people — 80 percent of them from Central Iowa — here every day, constructing a second data center building on the site. As you may have heard, we like to move fast at Facebook — and we are grateful to everyone who's helped us get to this point. We're proud to call you our neighbors and our friends, and to be a part of the community here in Altoona.
We're also proud of what we've built together — one of the most advanced, efficient, and sustainable data centers on the planet. Like our other data centers, Altoona is cooled by 100% outside air, and it features the latest in hyper-efficient Open Compute Project gear. Altoona is also our first data center to take advantage of our innovative new networking fabric, which will help us scale much more efficiently as more and more people connect on Facebook around the world. And last but not least, Altoona will be powered by 100% renewable energy*, thanks to the new wind project we worked with MidAmerican Energy to develop in nearby Wellsburg, Iowa. In addition to bringing more jobs and investment to the area, Wellsburg adds 140 MW of new renewable energy to the grid in Iowa — more than what our data center will require for the foreseeable future.
There's a lot more work to be done. But we are excited to have reached this milestone, and to be working side by side with this community to help make the city of Altoona and the state of Iowa great. Thank you!
