Okay, people always ask me about weather updates and what’s going on with data centers at any given moment. I recorded this summary last week as an overview of the various software infrastructure changes that have happened this year, and some meta-insights about data center watching.
A combination of review and weather update for datacenters as of August 23rd, 2006. Some comments on:
- data refreshes on June 27th, July 27th, and August 17th 2006
- Supplemental Results
- Infrastructure that improves quality and gives more accurate site: results estimates
Plus a short reminder that
- results estimates for site: are just estimates, with some reminders of their limitations (I mention too-high site: estimates in middle of the video, in the context of the “5 billion page” spammer whose best domain actually had <50K pages on it).
- watching individual data centers may not be the most productive use of your time.
As a bonus, at the beginning of the video I review some some schwag from the recent SES San Jose conference.
