> The google architecture is a cluster of 15,000 commodity PCs. Fault
> tolerence and reliability achieved in software (highly redundant
> 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
> interesting stuff here.
