The Google Boys

The Google BoysGoogle has been estimated to run over one million servers in data centers around the world, and process over one billion search requests and about twenty-four petabytes of user-generated data every day.

Google's meteoric rise to Internet stardom is one of the great business sagas of our time.

The sons of college professors, Larry Page and Sergey Brin - two brainy Stanford University grad students who founded the company - say their goal was to make the entire world's information searchable and instantly accessible.

Google was co-founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were students at Stanford University and the company was first incorporated as a privately held company on September 7, 1998.

Google’s first public offering took place on August 19, 2004, raising $1.67 billion, making it worth $23 billion.

Through a series of new product developments, acquisitions and partnerships, the company has expanded its first search and advertising business into other areas, including web-based email, online mapping, office productivity, and video sharing, among others.
