Where are Google’s data centers?
A large secret complex of large drives, cabinet-housed computers, internal and external network facilities, cooling systems and a variety of software appears to be the Google data center. These data centers are built by Google in many places around the world. In North America, there is a Google Center in Berkeley County, Council Bluffs, Douglas County, Jackson County, Lenoir, Montgomery County, Mays County, The Dales, Henderson and Reno.
In addition, two Quilicura in South America and one data center have been built in Cerillos, Colonia Nikolic, Uruguay in Chile. In Europe, Google’s data centers are in St. Gislain in Belgium, Hamina in Finland, Dublin in Ireland, Amshaven and Agriport in the Netherlands, Friedrichshain in Denmark, Zurich in Switzerland and Warsaw in Poland.
If we talk about Asia, then a Google data center has also been built in Jurong West of Singapore, Changhua County, Tainan City and Yunlin County of Taiwan and Mumbai, India. Although there is no official data on the total number of servers in Google data centers, a report that surfaced four years ago said that Google then had 2.5 million servers.
