In the latest of several thoughtful blog posts from ex-Googlers about why they left, Dhanji R. Prasanna called out Google's infrastructure as, well, dated.
Prasanna may understandably hold a grudge as one of the many Australian-based team members who worked on the doomed Google Wave collaboration software platform. Yet he said Google is easily the best job he ever had.
His major criticism is that the software running in Google's dozens of data centers is 10 years old, aging and designed for building search engines and crawlers.
Sour grapes? Really, obsolete?
