Introducing "Where the Internet Lives"

"Where the Internet Lives" is a new podcast about the unseen world of data centers. 

In this series, we’ll go inside a data center and learn how the machines actually work. 

We’ll hear about the early days of Google’s first data center designs — and how they set the stage for today’s hyper-scale facilities. 

We’ll learn about how data centers are becoming a backbone of the clean energy economy. 

And we’ll explore how quantum computing, the end of Moore’s law, and new uses of the Cloud are changing the way we build the physical internet.
