Google Testing New Storage System

Ainsley Jones

Google launched its Caffeine update earlier this month, and the company is now testing a new storage system, its second in the last 10 years. Search Engine Roundtable reports that Google's Caffeine infrastructure runs off the new storage system.


The new storage system will include more diagnostic and historic data and autonomic software, enabling the system to think more for itself and solve problems without human intervention. According to DailyTech, the new system will be a far cry from Google's early days when the Google File System lacked automatic failover if the master went down.
