Facebook: 600K new users a day - $1 million monthly electricity bill

datacenterknowledge.com reports that Facebook is adding 600,000 new users a day, with more than 140 million users worldwide, and monthly electrity costs of more than $1 million.  The need for more data center infrastructure led Facebook to supplement its Santa Clara data center with an additional facility in Ashburn, Virginia to address latency issues for European users.  More than 70 percent of Facebook users are now outside the United States.

With more than 10 billion user photos now hosted (see overall Facebook statistics) and 200 million users expected by early next year, the company's data center capacity requirements will only continue to grow.

Nice figures. About 10 months ago they claimed to have 10.000 Server and possibly doubled this number until today. This would mean, that each server has power costs of 50$ per month. Not bad.

I’m hoping that we’ll end up with a slew of prototyped ideas and a bunch of happy people. I’m sure there’ll be a lot more hard work until we can turn those embryonic proofs of concept into living

That's because the religion of the Left is the State. Whatever "faith tradition" you might have takes, at best, a distant second.
