Google may own more than 2% of all servers in the world

How many servers does Google have? Nobody outside Google knows exactly how many servers the company has, but there have been a number of estimates through the years. One of the most quoted ones is from 2006, when it was estimated that Google had approximately 450,000 servers. And that was three years ago.
Another estimate showed up in 2007, this time from the analyst firm Gartner, estimating the number of Google servers to one million.
Considering that both these estimates are from a long time ago and Google has grown its data centers significantly since then, it???s not unreasonable to assume that Google today has at least one million servers worldwide (in more than 30 data centers). This may even be a conservative estimate, but let???s settle for that number and not get too carried away.
