Where the Internet Lives
This week Google has given a rare glimpse into the data centres that power the large search engine. Like a lot of big companies they are very secretive about their data centres and the technology that they use. On Google’s official blog Senior Vice President, Technical Infrastructure, Urs Hölzle said ” Very few people have stepped inside Google’s data centres, and for good reason: our first priority is the privacy and security of your data, and we go to great lengths to protect it, keeping our sites under close guard.”
On their new website, Where the Internet Lives, you can view the stunning photography of Connie Zhou, which gives a never before seen look at the technology and the people that keep Google running.
