Google Data Centers are the large data center facilities Google uses to provide their services, which combine large amounts of digital storage (mainly hard drives and solid-state drives), computer nodes organized in aisles of racks, internal and external networking, environmental controls (mainly cooling and dehumidification), and operations software (especially as concerns load balancing and fault tolerance).
There is no official data on how many servers are in Google data centers, but Gartner estimated in a July 2016 report that Google at the time had 2.5 million servers. This number is changing as the company expands capacity and refreshes its hardware.
Large companies like Google and Facebook are notoriously secretive about their data centers, ostensibly because of concerns about privacy and security. But last few yeas ago, Google has decided to open the virtual doors to eight of its data centers, Google has 23 data centers in the US, 12 in Europe, one in Russia, one in South America, and three in Asia. now we can see exactly what is behind our data.Check out Google’s vintage data center order and take a visual tour of what Google’s data centers look like today.
