Has The Idea of one Mega Internet Computer Operating System ever crossed your mind? I have definitely thought about the possibility of a World Wide Operating System but I guess I was not the only one thinking about it. Google started out as a Search Engine, Their next big step was announcing Android Their new Mobile Operating System, and then their browser Chrome.
I know most large companies such as Microsoft and Apple never think about the possibility of their systems becoming obsolete by one company. Google isn't even in the Desktop Operating System game or so it seems to the naked eye. I read that Google may be working on a Internet Operating System.... Okay the idea sounds cool but after further research They may have something even bigger in mind!
Google has 100,000 Servers running multiple Web Applications. I was browsing blogs by other people who have had the same thought going through their head and it turns out that Google does have a working Mega Operating System their was even a link to an article about it that Google "moved" and the page it took me to did not have anything about the Google Operating System.
According to Skrenta's Blog "What is this platform that Google is building? It's a distributed computing platform that can manage web-scale datasets on 100,000 node server clusters. It includes a petabyte, distributed, fault tolerant filesystem, distributed RPC code, probably network shared memory and process migration. And a datacenter management system which lets a handful of ops engineers effectively run 100,000 servers."
I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to be on the same mega computer as a criminal.
