As solid a financial decision as buying Instagram
facebook is always reinventing the wheel with their open data center stuff. Why would you want to build your own two socket servers? How much time and money goes into sourcing, manufacturing, stocking parts, engineering designs, etc when they could just go out an buy a whole bunch of customized two sockets from the vendor of their choice. I am sure they would build any spec facebook wanted if they committed to a 10,000 unit order. Google and facebook will be burying their own fiber all over the world soon so they can have the pleasure of wrapping the cables.... It would be nice if these guys used their crazy wealth and engineering talent to build something new instead of a two socket server, we already have that covered.
