1. Google Data Centers
Google doesn’t grant visitor access to its data centers for obvious reasons.
Just imagine the chaos one can do by simply spilling coffee over a piece of hardware. Alternatively, picture one of the tourists separating from the group to upload something like the “Wanna Cry” ransomware. It could wreak havoc with Google’s results and force us to use nightmarish search engines like Bing, Yandex, or Ask.
The guys at Google were merciful with those dying to take a look at their state of the art data centers. One can walk around the facility in North Carolina using Street View.
But don’t expect the virtual trip to reveal the cogs behind Google’s success. The business model is, of course, much more than the way hard drives are put on the racks and connected with cables.
Below is a sample that Google Data Centers are not (yet) the real-life equivalent of Skynet. People working there are not robots, and their sense of humor is still alive.
Check out the photo below and observe the Stormtrooper guarding one of the aisles. Well played, Google!
