Iseng jalan2 ke situs Dedy Milisdad, eh ternyata kemaren ultah google yang ke 9… Hebat ya perusahaan satu ini.. pesat banget perkembangannya…

Kalo dilihat di wikipedia 1… server pertama yang mereka pake produksi di taun 1999 aja udah keren…

The original hardware (ca. 1998) that was used by Google when it was located at Stanford University, included:

  • Sun Ultra II with dual 200 MHz processors, and 256MB of RAM. This was the main machine for the original Backrub system.

  • 2 x 300 MHz Dual Pentium II Servers donated by Intel, they included 512MB of RAM and 9 x 9GB hard drives between the two. It was on these that the main search ran.

  • F50 IBM RS/6000 donated by IBM, included 4 processors, 512MB of memory and 8 x 9GB hard drives.

  • Two additional boxes included 3 x 9GB hard drives and 6 x 4GB hard drives respectively (the original storage for Backrub). These were attached to the Sun Ultra II.

  • IBM disk expansion box with another 8 x 9GB hard drives donated by IBM.

  • Homemade disk box which contained 10 x 9GB SCSI hard drives.

Circa

Sepertinya mereka sudah memikirkan scalability… dari awal cluster server diatas… hingga tahun 2005 udah punya 450,000 server!!!

Top banget deh…
