Google released its Q1 numbers yesterday, and I waited until GigaOm’s Derrick Harris through up the nice graphic of the quarterly spend.
Derrick’s post is here. One nice part I liked is he inserted the CFO’s comments about the infrastructure spend.
Google is one the few Cloud companies who can keep up with their demand by building data centers. Most need to dip into Wholesale providers. Think about if the big guys can’t anticipate their loads and build everything why should the rest of you? Google is the exception with a $9bil annual spend. ;-)
