As the world’s biggest search engine and provider of countless other online services, Google pushes a lot of data. To do that, it has some of the most advanced and largest data centers in the world, and now you can take a virtual online tour of them.
The tour, located here, features many stunning photographs, showing vast arrays of server racks, thousands of feet of colorful pipes in the cooling systems, and miles and miles of ethernet cables.
You can also see some of the people who keep all this running, as well as look at stunning exterior photos of Google’s data centers around the world — from North Carolina to Finland.
Furthermore, you can now explore Google’s data center in Lenoir, NC, in Street View.
