I've just ordered another 20 servers for our Florida cluster, and with 
the recently announced Yahoo deal, as well
as deals we are working on with some European educational/governmental 
organizations and another major search
engine, we will within the next few months more than double our total 
capacity, and expand from 2 data centers
(Florida, Paris) to 5 or 6 (Florida, somewhere in Asia, Amsterdam, 
Brussels, Paris, and another).

Pretty neat.
