I've also seen references to Sawzall, a Google proprietary internal programming language focused on productivity and performance. That sounds like a tough combination.

EJB ? Ofcourse ...
NOT !
EJB has the infamouse history of being poor regarding the performance.
Personally I think they use C, C++ and Python (I don't think they use a commercial language such as Java or C#)
For the database ? a flat file maybe

[Arun]: I have a doubt on how they use C#

And your "doubt" is...?

Usually when Indians say "doubt" I assume they mean "question". In this case, that rule seems to break down. If you have a question - well, what is it? If you have a doubt (in the usual meaning of the word in all other English-speaking countries) - well, what is it? This post seems too vague to make sense of. What are you trying to say here?

As another Indian, I would understand it as "I doubt if they use C#", as in he doesn't think Google uses C#, at all. I could be wrong...

Someone (Churchill?) once said that the English and the Americans are two peoples separated by a single language. Perhaps Indians should join that group!

Sorry Jim Yingst for not making my self clear

AS Ashok said I didnt think that they are using C# because I thought C# can be used along with Windows only and Google was saying that they used mostly linux based machines

After a quick search I found that C# can be used in linux also

well, Google writes software for use on Windows machines (that darn Goooooooooogle toolbar for example) and more frequently buys companies that do that.

Sawzall Paper. Describes the Google File System (... a document repository (the result of a web crawl) holding a few billion HTML pages might be stored as several thousand files each storing a million or so documents of a few kilobytes each, compressed..."), how WorkQueue builds a virtual time sharing system out of thousands of computers, how MapReduce executes a program across the cluster and reduces the results, and how a 10 line Sawzall program can do the work of 100-200 lines of C++
