Inside the Internet at Google’s Data Centers

Although it still baffles me the scope of data and media that is kept on the vast repository that is the internet, I am confident that the people over at Google are privy to some pretty interesting information. From Finland to Iowa to Oregon, Google’s data centers house routers and switches, fiber optic lines, drives and servers that host the internet. With over $3.2 billion invested towards their data centers in the last year alone, it looks like the guardians of the internet are committed to make the web as fast, efficient and dynamic as possible. Google recently opened it’s doors to the public to release these images of what that actually entails. And, in true brand spirit, the centers are color coordinated to adhere to the iconic Google palette. Thanks for the insight Google, we look forward to continuing the journey of pushing information and media to the infinite and beyond.
