世界只需七台電腦

Written by waylon on 十二月 20, 2006

前IBM 董事長Thomas J. Watson被謠傳曾說過「世界只需要5 台電腦」的經典名言。但昇陽執行長Greg Papadopoulos呼應認為,這概念最終會成真,更進一步提出世界只需要7 台電腦。

前6台電腦分別為,Google、Microsoft、Yahoo!、Amazon.com、eBay與Salesforce.com,最後一台電腦則為為「中國超大電腦」(Great Computer of China)。

他認為未來世界將發生大規模的併購活動,全世界只剩7 台電腦。但他提出的一台電腦,是結合數以十萬計的處理器、數以百萬計的硬碟,所成為一個規模超大的分散式系統。

下面是Greg Papadopoulo原文引述:
Let’s see, the Google grid is one. Microsoft’s live.com is two. Yahoo!, Amazon.com, eBay, Salesforce.com are three, four, five and six. (Well, that’s O(5) ;)) Of course there are many, many more service providers but they will almost all go the way of YouTube; they’ll get eaten by one of the majors. And, I’m not placing any wagers that any of these six will be one of the Five Computers (nor that, per the above examples, they are all U.S. West Coast based — I’ll bet at least one, maybe the largest, will be the Great Computer of China).
