Facebook announced that it will be using its Rapid Deployment Data Center (RDDC) concept that was created through the Open Compute Project (OCP) for its latest build in as part of a second building at the existing Luleå, Sweden data center location. The design was displayed at the Open Compute Summit in January, showing the strides the company has made in data center construction and development since the official launch of their first center in Prineville, Oregon in 2011.
Facebook has completed construction of its new datacenter in Forest City, North Carolina, and half of the new facility is now online and serving user traffic. The massive datacenter broke ground in November 2010, and is expected to be fully operational some time later in the year.
