Tech behind Google

Have you ever wondered how Google works? What makes it so fast like that? The most interesting part for me is its file system. Google implemented its own file system named GFS (Google File System). Anothor part is system architecture aka system landscape. The Google Cluster Architecture has been described here. It clearly stated that Google don"t care hardware reliability because Google"s softwares are highly tolerance. Everything is simple. Keep it simple, stupid!
