We Might Have Underestimated How Big Google Really Is

Looks like Google might be bigger than we thought it was.

The photo above is from Intac and is a visual portrayal of the exact number of devoted servers that major tech companies own. This diagram allows you to get a clear image of how much larger some of these servers are than others. If you just heard the numbers, like 100,000 for Intel and between 20,000 and 30,000 for Facebook and AT&T, you would just think of them as an interesting fact and nothing more.

Such companies like Amazon, eBay and Microsoft have over 50,000 servers but they have no chance as being as big as Google is. Google has an estimated 1,000,000 dedicated servers, which accounts for over 2% of all the servers in the world.

As I suspected, Facebook < Google. In more ways than one.
