Google's Oregon Data Center Blueprints


Today I ran across an interesting article from Harper's Magazine regarding the blue prints of the Google data center at The Dalles, Oregon. The article mainly focuses the amount of energy that the data center uses and the methods of getting the energy.

You can see the blue prints of the data center here.

You can read the article here.

It is interesting to see how one of the Google data centers is laid out. The next time you search on Google (and you know that almost everybody uses the Google search engine) perhaps your search will go through Google's data center at The Dalles, Oregon.
