Cloud Computing Facebook • Facebook has approximately 250,000 new registers per day • The programme relies on around 200 Memcached servers for temporarily storing data for day to day use. • In 2007 Facebook signed an agreement for 10,000 square feet of storage space in Ashburn Storage Center in Virginia. Variety of tools and programming used that are good for security, speed and reliability, storing data and memory system. LINUX/MYSQL/PHP/MEMCACH Facebook has over 350M users
  6. 6. Cloud Computing File Sharing - peer-to-peer Why? - e-mail has size limitations on attachments - safe storage files sent to online storage files waiting in 'cloud' for recipient to go online and retrieve them Business software Personal software
