I’m always fascinated about anything that I can learn about Google. From its mythical Googleplexes to the sheer audacity behind some of its moves, Google powers the web, through and through.

google data center search query software

This great infographic from PPCBlog gives us tons of info on exactly happens when you launch a Google search query. According to the graphic, Google has 19 data centers in the U.S. alone, and another 17 around the globe. These data centers can be up to 500,000 square feet and cost up to 600 million dollars. The servers themselves are housed in standard shipping containers and can hold up to 1,160 servers each. All in all, I’m sure that if there ever is a Skynet, it will use Google data centers as a base.

Check out the full size graphic to see all the gory details.
