Within hours of Microsoft naming him as its next CEO, Satya Nadella’s name was abuzz on the Internet. So much so that he raked up about half a billion search results on Google in less than 30 seconds.

A Times of India report says that in 0.14 seconds, 12.8 million news articles on Nadella propped up on the search website.

Hyderabad-born Nadella has become the first Indian-origin CEO of the software behemoth and only the third person to lead the company since its formation about four decades ago.

His name was doing the rounds for several months, as replacement for Steve Ballmer. Nadella served as head of the company’s cloud computing division and enterprise business.
