High-Scale Service Server Counts

From an interesting article in Data Center Knowledge Who has the Most Web Servers:

The article continues to speculate on server counts at the companies that publically disclose server counts but are likely over 50k. Google is likely around a million, microsoft is over 200k, and “Amazon says very little about its data center operations”.

  1. Hey, I’ll talk about interesting products like SimpleDB but who wants to hear about boring old details on large, unlit data centers :-).

    If only we knew someone at Amazon who knew about their data center operations and could leak some of that interesting information :)
