Google Groans Under Data Strain

During his keynote at the Interop show here this week, Girouard explained that the firm blows through "an incredible amount" of computing power, disk space, and bandwidth. The exec noted that the firm has “concerns about the future in all these respects.”

“If you look at what we’re doing with Google Earth,” he explained, “it doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to say that there’s a tremendous amount of processing power, bandwidth, and storage going on at Google in everything that we do.” Google Earth, part Web-based geography app, part 3D-rendering machine, whirls users around the globe with frightening speed and clarity.

Google's under stress? Aww, well what about the webmaster's that follow the TOS and still get the shaft. Perhaps it's not the same type of stress (emotional), but this one made me smile. Take some of your billions and get your act together.
