The Secret Source of Google's Power

Here is a wonderful blog on what's happening behind the scenes of
.

I am very much impressed the way their researchers are doing stuff at google. No wonder M$ is so worried about google :o)

Here is an excerpt from the Blog..

Google has taken the last 10 years of systems software research out of university labs, and built their own proprietary, production quality system. What is this platform that Google is building? It's a distributed computing platform that can manage web-scale datasets on 100,000 node server clusters. It includes a petabyte, distributed, fault tolerant filesystem, distributed RPC code, probably network shared memory and process migration. And a datacenter management system which lets a handful of ops engineers effectively run 100,000 servers. Any of these projects could be the sole focus of a startup.

In this presentation Google's own fellow,Urs Hölzle, gives an in sight about it.
