In light of Steve Ballmer’s confirmation that Microsoft has more than 1 million servers, we’ve updated our list of Who Has The Most Web Servers? to reflect the official Microsoft number. The updated list also features new totals from Facebook, OVH, Akamai, Rackspace and eBay. Check out the updated Who Has The Most Web Servers. The list includes companies that have publicly confirmed their server counts, with a separate section to discuss those that don’t disclose the data, but are likely large enough to merit discussion.
