Facebook has open sourced the code it uses to measure the energy and water consumption of its data centers, as well as the code for the dashboard that visualizes those readings in real time. Facebook first publicly shared the dashboard in April 2013 for its Prineville, Ore., and Forest City, N.C., data centers and it has been available online since. Facebook says cloud provider Rackspace helped get the code ready for open source and is considering implementing it for its data centers.
