Daniel Costello Moves from Microsoft to GoogleSeptember 7th, 2010 : Rich Miller
Daniel Costello discusses the use of PACs (pre-assembled components) in Microsoft data centers at The Uptime Symposium in May.
Google has confirmed that Daniel Costello, who has been a key member of data center design teams at Microsoft and Intel, has joined the company’s data center staff. “We’re excited to welcome Dan to our infrastructure team,” said a Google spokesperson. “He has a great track record working with Microsoft and Intel, and we’re happy to have him on board.”
Now that Rich has posted, watch the news spread to other media outlets.
Rich referenced my post as part of his.
Does Costello’s departure from Microsoft (first noted by Dave Ohara) tell us anything about what’s ahead for data center design at Google? Or is Google simply the next frontier for a man with Costello’s design experience? Time will tell.
