Best seats for the eclipse? Our Prineville data center

Our Prineville data center is home to photos, videos, reactions, and a great view of the 2017 eclipse.

Our data centers house the infrastructure that makes it possible to connect billions of people. Our data centers also help us accommodate the growing number of photos and videos being shared, and help us scale as we create more data intensive and immersive experiences through live video, 360 photos and videos, and VR/AR.

And in the case of Prineville, our data center also provided a great space for seeing the 2017 eclipse. Thanks to one of our team members who set up camp there with some great camera equipment we get to share an awesome timelapse and a few stellar shots. Enjoy!
