Video: Have you ever wondered what a Google data centre looks like?

The American corporation has released a video which shows the inside of its data centre in North Carolina. It’s not small.

Google have put up a video on YouTube (whose videos are hosted in data centres such as these) which looks inside one of them.

The two-minute video explores the networking room within the North Carolina data centre and also shows what they do when one of their hard drives break.

It concludes by showing off its massive cooling towers, which help to keep everything running as it should.

They’ve even provided a streetview of the complex, which you can look at by clicking here.
