Server Clusters.  Basically lots of different servers acting as one huge one, and then more clusters for redundancy.

You might find this article interesting.  It shows how different the large companies server operations are from the smaller ones.  http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2012/11/amazon-google-secret-servers/   Other articles estimate that Amazon has between 150,000 and 500,000 servers.  Google has over 1.2 million servers while Facebook is supposed to have only 200,000.  And Microsoft is supposed to have over 1 million.  But those counts may be old, they're all still growing.

Amazon is reported to have 1000 software engineers programming and maintaining their systems.  Google, Microsoft, and Facebook have many thousands of programmers.
