Interesting that Google’s data centers do not appear on this list, even though when I think of massive container style data-centers, the first name that pops to my head is Google.
On the worthy contenders list, here is what they have to say:
Where is Google? Many readers may have expected to see some Google data centers on the list. But Google’s new construction has focused on data center campuses featuring multiple facilities, rather than single huge buildings. As a result, Google has multiple data center buildings larger than 300,000 feet, but none (that we can find, anyway) larger than the 400,000 SF entry point for our list. For more on Google’s data centers, see our Google Data Center FAQ.
