There’s little such thing as privacy in this world. If you use the Internet and access any major technology platform, your data is almost definitely being captured in some form or another. How often do you think about what kind of information is out there and who has access to it?
Unless you’re extremely diligent, you can guarantee that at least one of the major players — Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Amazon or Microsoft — has some data on you. And this infographic from Security Baron tells you what they might have.
Even though the infographic isn’t even a year old yet, it already contains some outdated information (Google+ doesn’t exist anymore). Still, it remains an eye-opener and accurate on most fronts.
There are some pretty advanced data centres out there holding the world’s information and ensuring applications of all nature keep running so we can live our daily lives. Each one is created uniquely to ensure it can serve the needs of company, while also adjusting to its location and maximizing on efficiency. Last year, we shared a 360 degree tour of a Google Data Centre which was pretty cool, but as this infographic from WhoIsHostingThis shows, it doesn’t even scratch the surface of creativity.
Did you know there’s a data centre in a former NATO ammunication storehouse, as well as a decommissioned nuclear bunker? What about the fact that Yahoo! build data centres based on the design of a chicken coop? Keep scrolling to learn more about how these spectacular, and sometimes bizarre, buildings work.
Hands-down, this is by far the coolest video we’ve shown on the Talent Development Centre to-date. Not because Google Cloud Platform gives us an inside look at Google’s massive Data Centre (although that is pretty cool), but because of what happens when you press play and start clicking on the video.
