Must be that custom networking gear they bought

Here is how he describes the three key principles behind the design of Google’s data center networks:

  • We arrange our network around a Clos topology, a network configuration where a collection of smaller (cheaper) switches are arranged to provide the properties of a much larger logical switch.
  • We use a centralized software control stack to manage thousands of switches within the data center, making them effectively act as one large fabric.
  • We build our own software and hardware using silicon from vendors, relying less on standard Internet protocols and more on custom protocols tailored to the data center.

Smart guy, I was thinking the same. All Google/Alphabet products having issues on Sunday, a day or two after antitrust action appears to be looming.

Even gov't employees use Google, Gmail, and other products/services on their off time, they'd surely hate to see such things stop working, especially if the purported SNAP/Food Stamp benefits can't be processed tomorrow and the rest of the week. The Food Stamps only pay for 2 weeks of food, the welfare masses haven't had much to eat since mid-May. They won't be happy and losing their social media will likely drive them to riot.
