Frank Frankovsky sees a blurry line between servers and networking devices, so he’s heading in the other direction. With Facebook’s Open Compute Project, networking is about to be turned upside down.

Stacey Higginbotham’s recent article delved into more details about Frankovsky’s plan, stating that the server of tomorrow will basically look “more like a rack.” That’s a strong statement from a huge influencer. Will the contents of the data center change altogether, eliminating servers as we know them?
