Geeky Friday: Google's magic

Ika pointed me at an article on Google's infrastructure. They have more than 2,000 PCs in each of 30+ clusters (2,000 x 30 = 60,000 computers), they index about 40TB of data each day and their custom file system has a block size of 64MB (block size is usually around 2KB on a desktop machine).
