In a detailed blog post, James Pearn estimated the number of servers that Google uses to about 2.4 millions based on datacenter floor space (figure for 2013). His estimate is quite convincing, so we can estimate that Google uses between 2 and 10 million servers.

These servers are organized in clusters of more than 15 000 commodity class PCs with fault tolerant software, as described in "WEB SEARCH FOR A PLANET:THE GOOGLE CLUSTER ARCHITECTURE." They do not use expensive high-end servers.
