Running Open Compute Hardware in Facebook's Data Centers
Joel Kjellgren, Facebook
Facebook runs some of the world's most efficient data centers that are powered by hardware from the Open Compute project. Hear more on how Facebook designs, deploys, automates, and maintains Open Compute hardware at scale, and how we engineer the building, hardware, network, and software to operate as efficiently as possible.
Joel Kjellgren is the manager for Facebook's award-winning data center site in Luleå, Sweden. In that role, he leads the teams operating the first data centers outside of the U.S. and the first to use 100% Open Compute Project hardware. Built to be cooled only using the arctic air in northern Sweden and powered 100% by renewable energy, the Luleå data center sets a new standard for efficiency and sustainability.
Prior to joining Facebook, Joel worked with large-scale IT and data center infrastructure at European internet businesses such as Spray, Lycos, Ongame, and Bwin.
