Google shows secretive data centres

2012-10-17 20:01

San Francisco - Google is opening a virtual window into the secretive data centres that serve as its nerve centre. The closely guarded facilities house an intricate maze of computers that process internet search requests, show YouTube video clips and distribute email for millions of people.

The unprecedented peek is being provided through a new website unveiled on Wednesday. The site features photos from inside some of the eight data centres that Google already has running in the US, Finland and Belgium. Google is also building data centres in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Chile.

Virtual tours of a North Carolina data centre also will be available through Google's "Street View" service, which is usually used to view photos of neighbourhoods around the world.
