Episode-30: Project Quicksilver
In this episode, Dean Nelson & Mike Lewis formally announce project Quicksilver. Quicksilver is Liquid Metal Mercury that moves and changes very quickly. This is the second public modular RFP that eBay has conducted through Data Center Pulse. The first resulted in Project Mercury, a new Data Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Besides the obvious play on the Project Mercury name, Quicksilver was picked because it represents the capability we are looking for in data center portfolio. How can we create a generic, flexible data center infrastructure that can move and change with our business needs? We let the industry experts tell us how. As you will see, we are taking the public RFP to the next level. The video below gives more insight into the project by describing the Scope, Requirements, Process and Schedule.
