Amir Michael
Manager Hardware Design, Facebook


Amir Michael joined Facebook in 2009 and leads the hardware design team responsible for the design and implementation of the servers that power one of the most-trafficked sites in the world.

Amir was part of a small team at Facebook that embarked on project to build one of the most efficient computing infrastructures at the lowest possible cost. The result of that project was a Facebook first dedicated data center which is 38% more efficient and 24% less expensive to build and run than other state-of-the-art data centers. Amir plays an active role in the Open Compute Project, Facebook’s initiative to share the custom-engineered technology in its first dedicated data center as an open source project.

Prior to Facebook, Amir worked at Google where he developed server and data center infrastructure. Amir holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
