Oh, how I love sarcasm.

I don't know this for a fact, since I have no way to measure how much
traffic various companies generate, but I get the impression Google
deals with a fair bit of network traffic. At least enough that I pay
attention when they're sharing their experiences in doing so. Their
analysis looks pretty good. Can you point out some of the weak spots
or perhaps explain why it doesn't apply to our use cases?
