An inside look at the Google Data Centers

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Google is notoriously secretive about its data and where it is housed. For the first time they "open the doors" and allow an inside peak.

Take a very guided tour of several key data centers, with shots by professional photographers and some info about what's going on. It's a well designed tour that looks more like a photo gallery – but there's also a Street View, and a panoramic look at the inside of a data center.

See if you can spot the Storm Trooper and the small R2-D2 guarding the place. Tip: you'll see them in the Street View tour of the Lenoir, NC Data Center – but you'll have to be quick!
