"It was clear we would need to begin building datacenters of our own," says Google's Vice President of Engineering Luiz Andr Barroso.

Luiz André Barroso, vice president of engineering at Google, is the foremost architect of ultra-scale datacenters, an ACM Fellow, recipient of the 2020 ACM-IEEE CS Eckert-Mauchly Award, and co-author of "The Datacenter as a Computer," the authoritative textbook on warehouse-scale computing systems. In an interview, he discusses his work, including rethinking the datacenter, improving Google Maps, and using software efficiencies to improve hardware.
