Google needs lightning-fast response time for its searches, and prizes fast connections between its data centers. While big pipes can help address this requirement, some observers believe Google carefully spaces its data centers to preserve low latency in connections between facilities.Do the blank spots in the map indicate areas of future expansion for Google, or simply regions where demand hasn’t yet reached critical mass? Or are these “holes” in the map already served by Google data centers that are so secret that no one knows about them? Have a look  and decide.
