How Does a Google Query Work?

How Does a Google Query Work? How many machines does it hit? How many clusters are there? How many Google DNS servers? How many data centers? I know Google is famously secretive about this information, but I'd love to understand just how the results page gets back to me, with as much detail as possible. Many people take guesses about this, but I'm looking for some real concrete data.
