Google is showing their data centers in guided tours via YouTube, StreetView and Photo galleries. Google data has a virtual open house that shows what data centers look like.

Joe Kava Senior Director, Google is appearing on morning television explaining that Google is showing the public a virtual open house via a new website. Google serves billions of pages, but the security of customer data doesn't allow walking tours for the public in their facilities. However, Google now shows off its facilities using its own technology -- Google Street view, YouTube and traditional photo galleries.

Google data centers exist in Council Bluffs, Iowa; St. Ghislain, Belgium; and future sites include Hong Kong and Singapore.
