Here are some fun facts!
1. Google Apps runs on the same custom hardware and software and from the same custom data centers as the Google.com search engine.
2. Google is 4th largest manufacturer of servers in the world.
3. If all data centers operated at the same efficiency as Google's, the U.S. alone would save enough electricity to power every household within the city limits of Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
4. Wyoming is implementing Google Apps for Government across the entire state.
5. More than 550,000 new Android devices are activated everyday!
6. Google is able to reuse and recycle 100% of servers by being both the producer and consumer of the machine.
7. Google Apps receives more than 100 new features each year.
8. Google Apps is free for schools and nonprofits.
9. Google periodically uses goats to trim grass and brush on the grounds of their California headquarters
10. And one for the geeks. Google Apps data is fractured and obfuscated across multiple servers and disks, making it human-unreadable. Data is replicated in multiple data centers for redundancy and consistent availability. To reduce exploit risks, each Google server is custom-built with only the necessary software components, and the homogeneous server architecture enables rapid updates and configuration changes across the entire network when necessary.
