Google's Hardware DemiseTopics: Technology
In an article about the epic battle between Google and Microsoft, the search engine giant's CEO gives an inside look at the hardware battle field:
As Google grows, so does its need to store and handle more Web site information, video and e-mail content on its servers. "Those machines are full," Mr. Schmidt, the chief executive, said in an interview last month. "We have a huge machine crisis."Machines full? A huge crisis? Ouch! Perhaps this is why Hyscience, with over 6,000 unique posts, has only 500 indexed pages in Google.
To catch up, Microsoft is also stepping up capital spending as it invests aggressively to build data centers worldwide. "It is becoming more capital intensive," said Mr. Sherlund of Goldman Sachs. "But the company has a bulging cash position and no debt. That's not a constraint for Microsoft."
