  • Whenever you use a Google product, you're connecting to one of our data centers around the world.

  • Let's take a look inside and see how they work.

  • Google employees work here, keeping the data center up and running twenty four hours a day.

  • The Networking Room is the first stop on our data center floor. The equipment here routes

  • requests to the right servers in the next room. These computers also allow our data

  • centers to communicate with one another globally.

  • On the Server Floor, powerful computers handle everything from billions of searches, to hosting

  • YouTube videos, then protecting your email against viruses.

  • We've custom designed these servers to be compact and energy efficient.

  • To ensure you have access to your data whenever you need it, we keep each piece of data stored

  • on at least two servers.

  • We store another copy of the most important data on digital tapes.

  • When a hard drive breaks, we erase all of its content. Then, for extra security, we

  • destroy it with our disk crusher.

  • The machines in our data centers are always working. Cooling towers like these pipe in

  • water to cool them down and keep them running. When the water heats up, we pump it back outside

  • where it evaporates.

  • Now that you've had a glimpse, walk inside yourself.

  • Explore a Google data center with Street View.
