Introducing data center fabric, the next-generation Facebook data center network

The more than 1.35 billion people who use Facebook on an ongoing basis rely on a seamless, “always on” site performance. On the back end, we have many advanced sub-systems and infrastructures in place that make such a real-time experience possible, and our scalable, high-performance network is one of them.

Facebook’s production network by itself is a large distributed system with specialized tiers and technologies for different tasks: edge, backbone, and data centers. In this post, we will focus on the latest developments in our data center networking and unveil the next-generation architecture that we have successfully deployed in our new Altoona facility: data center fabric.
