Google Shows Their Data Centers by Street View

Today, for the first time in the history of Google, the company opened the doors of its data center infrastructure for Street View and showed a little of what happens there. In a special project called “Where do you live the internet” were published detailed pictures of some of its servers around the United States and Europe. The video below shows a data center tour located in Lenoir, North Carolina.

(Video on YouTube)

The video mentions that, to keep data secure, Google stores all data in at least two servers. And a backup copy of that data that are more important tape is stored in servers, where mechanical arms are responsible for moving the strips from one side to the other in a kind of well ballet old school. Who wants to visit on your own, at least virtually, can open the Google Maps link and do the tour in Street View.

Already in the image gallery of the site, with Connie Zhou authoring photos were published information from seven other servers in the US and two in Europe, one in Bégica and another in Finland. The gallery also describes (at least somewhat) cooling technology used in data centers and some of the people who work there. This one above is Denise Harwood, looking for the reasons one processor to overheat.

As a geek, it’s exciting to see (or at least take a look) inside the servers of one of the largest web companies today. And that’s just the beginning: Google said it will publish more images and details of your servers in the coming weeks that particular blog.
