Dal blog di John Battelle scopro che Google ha superato i 100.000 computer utilizzati per il servizio di ricerca più consultato al mondo (più di 200 milioni di richieste al giorno).
Google has been quietly developing what industry experts consider to be the world’s largest computing facility. Last spring, Google had more than 50,000 computers distributed in over a dozen computer centers around the world. The number topped 100,000 by Thanksgiving, according to a person who has detailed knowledge of the Google computing data center.
That’s 10x what has been reported in the past.
