I feel like Google practically invented modern high-scale architecture. With an origin story as an academic project with major scaling ideas built in as a principle concept, it kind of makes sense that reliability has always been their core thing—vs Facebook which was a PHP app scaled by any means necessary along the way, makes sense that they wouldn’t be known for reliability per se.

But these companies all pull off amazing things in this regard. There are plenty of reasons to criticize the tech giants, I’d say reliability isn’t one of them. They all do fairly amazing work.
