New Google Street View Feature Lets You See “Where The Internet Lives”

Have you ever been curious to see where the Internet and all of your important data lives? For the first time, Google is opening their many locked doors and allowing people to see just how much work goes into to keeping their business up and running. What makes the tour interesting is that it isn’t done through video or guided tour, but actually done through Google’s Street View. 

Once you locate one of Google’s many data centers, you can take a virtual walk through and get an inside look. A very neat and nifty feature indeed.

        They must have more maintenance workers than software engineers, I’m surprised there isn’t a Google trade school/ university. I wonder if the servers are kept in clean rooms, I clean my pc once a month from dust, there it must be never ending in cleaning the server farms.

        *sigh* A man can dream, can’t he?

        My aunt works in the Pittsburgh offices. She’s taken me there before. It seems like such an awesome place to work. Google treats their employees so well.

    I like the Storm Trooper in the one room and the Droid figure fenced in.

  • Asuriyan

    That main photo looks like the engine room from the 2009 Enterprise.

    Which looks like the inside of a Budweiser facility.

    Huh.

      That is their chiller plant. Those pipes are carrying 45 degree water to air conditioners.

    That’s Crazy!

    The article over at Wired.com about how Google created such an intricate eco-system is a great read. I think that article is what prompted this video.

    Here’s a link to the article if anyone wants to read it:
