Google Opens the Doors to its Data Centers, Storm Trooper Security Revealed


Google has granted some publications a limited, exclusive look in to their datacenters. In addition to this look provided by Wired Magazine, Google has also created a Street View-esque tour of one of their North Carolina datacenters. In typical Google fashion, there are a few surprises – the most hilarious of which is a storm trooper, standing guard over a massive server rack, with a miniature R2-D2 model seen in the foreground. Both are characters in George Lucas’ Star Wars¬†(as if you didn’t know that already), and show Google’s quirky, yet unwaveringly geeky, culture which attracts so many bright and talented minds.¬†Good on the guys over in Mountain View – this is the best of Google, in one photo.
