Cringely nails it again

with one comment

Robert Cringley writes a wonderful article over at PBS on why Google is about to define Web 2.0. He states,

Two years ago Google had one data center. Today they are reported to have 64. Two years from now, they will have 300-plus. The advantage to having so many data centers goes beyond simple redundancy and fault tolerance. They get Google closer to users, reducing latency. They offer inter-datacenter communication and load-balancing using that no-longer-dark fiber Google owns. But most especially, they offer super-high bandwidth connections at all peering ISPs at little or no incremental cost to Google.

There’s more juice in the article.

  1. I found it very interesting, but I think he did nail it, and like he says, more to come next week.
