Why couldn't they just call it "Google Drive" ;)

Oooh! So this is about Google Drive. I was so confused by this post.

If Google's developers can't understand this, it's no wonder I can't. >.<

No, it's not Google Drive. Chubby is used to store tiny files (locks) and nothing else. Other pieces of infrastructure (like GFS, Bigtable) use it as a reliable locking and name resolving mechanism.
