If you have this question that how Big is Google then here at this post, just get to know about that! Here we will be telling you that with regard to its stock price, with regard to its revenue and profit, with regard to its gross profit and also net income, Google has been the biggest one! Yes, Google is Software and it is by far the biggest software.
Rachel Potvin report
We have heard that Rachel Potvin from Google at Silicon Vally reported during engineering conference with regard to the estimation of Google! She said that software that has been needed to run Google’s Internet services needs Gmail, Google Search and also Google Maps and all of them have 2 billion lines of code. In comparison with Microsoft’s Operating System Windows, they have been using almost 50 million lines of code. These 2 billion lines of code have been available to 25,000 Google engineers. She also said that Google has complex software that has now well grown in this age of Internet. This Google’s code repository has been just available to coders who are inside the Google.
Handling the Code
Google has its own “version control system” so that it can juggle with the code. This system has been named as Piper, it has been running across this online infrastructure which Google has built and this System just spans over to 10 different Google data centers! This Piper also has an extension of about 85 terabytes of data. It is also seen that Google’s engineer can well be making up 45,000 changes in the repository each and every day. We have viewed that the Linux open source operating just spans to 15 million lines of code and that too across 40,000 files of software.
Piper too let the engineers to lessen up their burdens, they let them to remove bugs and also to get done with the useful changings in their code.
