At 7p I decided to check on the Twitter Data Center news and saw way more posts/articles than I would expect on a data center migration project.

All these data center posts without a press release from Twitter, just a post on Twitter’s engineering blog.

And a little help from the Green Data Center blog.

Thanks for reading Green Data Center blog.
