Google paneb uut arvutit kokku

Mõni aeg tagasi kirjutasin, et Google’il hakkab kõvaketas täis saama. Muretsemiseks pole põhjust Google on otsustanud oma arvutiparki kaasajastada ja kui midagi ette võtta siis juba korralikult:

On the banks of the windswept Columbia River, Google is working on a secret weapon in its quest to dominate the next generation of Internet computing. But it is hard to keep a secret when it is a computing center as big as two football fields, with twin cooling plants protruding four stories into the sky.

Aga ega neil praegugi arvutipark tagasihoidlikusega ei hiilga:

“Google has constructed the biggest computer in the world, and it’s a hidden asset,” said Danny Hillis, a supercomputing pioneer and a founder of Applied Minds, a technology consulting firm.

The best guess is that Google now has more than 450,000 servers spread over at least 25 locations around the world.
