Land of the Giants
On the cover: Keeping all of Google online is a hard job, but a fascinating one. So we talked to Benjamin Treynor Sloss, the guy who has to do that for a living. We also interviewed David Gauthier, the person behind Microsoft’s data center strategy, AWS’ Ian Massingham and Facebook’s Delfina Eberly.
