Apple?

They are in the process of building a new data centre in North Carolina.

Facebook, don't they use their own?

Neither, I'd say

Not sure if Apple even operates datacentres in California.

And Facebook is all about OCP.

If these are dual-cpu servers, at 16 cores it would mean almost a million cores.

That's quite a lot of VMs or containers.

El SuperBladeo

"... SuperBlade supports up to 10/14/20 ES-2600 v4"

ES-2600? Well, the chips are made in Mexico (or is it Singapore now? Keeping up with sweat shop manufacturing is such a pain).

Whose DC is it - Intel's maybe?

Intel's formerly vacant chip fabs in Santa Clara [0], maybe? There's an Intel white-paper describing their high density sub 1.07 PUE design [1].

Nuclear because their hot aisles can reach 54 degrees Celsius.

Re: Whose DC is it - Intel's maybe?

Why would Intel buy Supermicro servers? Intel make their own server boards.

That may be a reason why we don't get to know the name of the happy client of SuperMicro ;-)

I'd bet intel

Intel buys alot of servers from their vendor partners and this aligns with designs that they havve talked about in the past.

Probably Apple.

I've seen pallets of Super Micro servers going into the cages of Apple already. Wouldn't surprise me if they bought even more.
