The wooosh without the petaflops
Data centers are not only the brains of modern tech companies, they are the cathedrals of all information technology. All the computer, server and networking components needed by our modern world are packed into large, isolated, climate controlled, secured rooms. In there, the sound of the equipment is intense: the fans whooshing, the power supply units humming, the hard drives spinning... Listen. Close your eyes. You are surrounded by the electronic brains of the modern world; each processing requests, crunching data, and assembling responses at almost light speed! If the Internet was a sound, this would be it.
