Submission + - How Facebook Will Power Graph Search (

Nerval's Lobster writes: "Last week, Facebook announced Graph Search, a system for searching the social network’s vast collection of users, photos, and “Liked” interests. But how will Facebook power it? The Disaggregated Rack, which will separate compute, RAM, storage, and caching functions in order to remain flexible in the face of Graph Search's changing needs. By breaking up resources and scaling them independently of each other, Facebook can scale without needing to constantly open up new servers and upgrade new hardware."
