 Peeking Into Google

Interesting look at how Google does what it does.

"All machines run on a stripped-down Linux kernel. The distribution is Red Hat, but Hoelzle said Google doesn't use much of the distro. Moreover, Google has created its own patches for things that haven't been fixed in the original kernel. "The downside to cheap machines is, you have to make them work together reliably," Hoelzle said. "These things are cheap and easy to put together. The problem is, these things break.""
