No more googleplexes ; Google just needs data centers

“Like ice gradually melting into the oceans in the Arctic regions, enterprises want to slowly migrate to the cloud, or utility, computing model, with services delivered by massive-scale data centers. But, the tech industry will have its own global warming, pushing companies to move faster to the cloud to stay competitive” - say Dan Farber and Larry Dignan.

The company is spending over several billion dollars to build data centers collectively housing hundreds of thousands of servers running massively parallel computations in power-friendly locations in Iowa, Oklahoma, Oregon and North and South Carolina, and that’s just in the U.S – to deliver fast and accurate search results besides creating entry barrier for others.

Here I wrote about Google’s data center outside US – in Siberia. You might as well spell it as “Cyberia”, now that Google has trained its guns.
