Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 12/05/2004 08:59:00 PM.

The numbers alone are enough to make your eyes water.
  • Over four Eight billion Web pages, each an average of 10KB, all fully indexed.
  • Up to 2,000 PCs in a cluster.
  • Over 30 clusters.
  • 104 interface languages including Klingon and Tagalog.
  • One petabyte of data in a cluster -- so much that hard disk error rates of 10-15 begin to be a real issue.
  • Sustained transfer rates of 2Gbps in a cluster.
  • An expectation that two machines will fail every day in each of the larger clusters.
  • No complete system failure since February 2000.
