Ex Google Employee Suggests Google's Infrastructure Is Obsolete

Ex Google Employee Suggests Google's Infrastructure Is Obsolete [googlewatch.eweek.com]
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?

Where the internet is concerned, anything 10 months old seems to be obsolete these days - so 10 years is probably comparable to dinosaurs.

Well this is one of the guys that was involved with the Google wave fiasco. In no way is this a thoughtful blog post (childish, petulant and amateur night are words that come to mind)

And some times old but rock solid kit is what you need BT still uses Big iron Mainframes to do billing.

Probably wanted to show that he is hip...unlike those staying there :)

But obsolete or not, it's working much better than pretty much anything out there.
