+ - Facebook suffers actual cloud in the datacenter->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Register carries the funniest, most topical IT story of the year :

Facebook's first data center ran into problems of a distinctly ironic nature when a literal cloud formed in the IT room and started to rain on servers.

Though Facebook has previously hinted at this via references to a "humidity event" within its first data center in Prineville, Oregon, the social network's infrastructure king Jay Parikh told The Reg on Thursday that, for a few minutes in Summer, 2011, Facebook's data center contained two clouds: one powered the social network, the other poured water on it."
