Exercise? They would get a lot more of that if they would have to walk.

Wouldn't you achieve greater efficiency having one tightly controlled and monitored environment vs. 30 or 40?

If you mean DC locations, perhaps, but by spreading out its servers all around the globe, Google greatly reduces, if not eliminates, the chance that a problem at any one (or two or three or ...) locations will bring the Google network down.

It's the old thing about not keeping all your eggs in one basket.

Fully agree on the standpoint of global redundancy but I was referring to the compartmentalized design of within that datacenter. I would venture to guess that it is more cost effective and more efficient to control one large raised floor area vs. 30-40 shipping containers. I would love to see the cost benefit analysis for that design... like that's ever going to happen.

So, that's the kind of Datacenter you can build when you have billions of dollars for your budget. NICE!

Who wants to take on the champ?
