Search engines would be more efficient if they were decentralized, reports MIT’s Technology Review. In other words, they’d be faster if they were run like bot-nets. advertisement Bot-nets are networks of zombie computers whose processing resources have been possessed by viruses, ready to be exploited by whoever spread the virus. Just two years ago, it was thought that the most powerful supercomputer on earth was actually a bot-net created by the Storm worm. (Below, a modern data center.) Search engines like Google and Yahoo, by comparison, usually centralize their processing in enormous data centers. Researchers at Yahoo have begun to re-think the approach, according to MIT, and theorize that it might be better to spread the engine’s index around a smattering of smaller data centers. According to MIT: “With this approach, smaller data centers would contain locally relevant information and a small proportion of globally replicated data. Many search queries … [Read more...] about What Can Yahoo Learn From Malware?
