Google Data Center Security: 6 Layers Deep

Security is one of the most critical elements of any system and one of the greatest concerns of companies when they consider migrating their systems to the cloud. When we talk about security in the cloud, we usually mean virtual security, i.e., unauthorised access to information itself. But we must also protect the physical centres that exist and where the information itself is stored.

Google is one of the world’s leading providers of cloud services, with dozens of data centres around the world. They manage a very complex network in which security operations are critical.

Do you know the six layers of security in Google’s data processing centers?

Stephanie Wong, Google Cloud Developer Advocate, goes into one of the company’s super centres to explain the six layers of physical security designed to thwart any attempt at unauthorised access.
