To say nothing of the fact that they, wisely, throw massive amounts of hardware at the problem. They can do this in part because they can amortize the cost over a massive user database. I don't think anyone using our tools is going to be in a remotely similar situation.

Google does somehow also the batching hellfast.

Google is a bad partner to compare with when talking about DBMS
efficiency. Google allows sloppy and "wrong" results in trade of for
speed.

(E.g. they update their indexes distributetly and do allow different
results to be returned for your search each time you search, they just
don't care.)

This allows them to do heavy caching and use their map/lambda recipe on a
more localized set of data.
