> picked this up from a former apache http server collegue
> The google architecture is a cluster of 15,000 commodity PCs. Fault

> systems with software to detect and route around failures). Design
> tailored for best aggregate throughput, not peak server response time.
> Parallelize individual requests to manage response time. Lots of other
