Tech giant Google has started a new project named as The Data Center Mural Project. For this project, Google has partnered with artists to make things great and beautiful. Most of the technology and products we use can be done with the help of data centers. Data centers are large data houses which store and process data. But how actually they work and process data? To make people understand this process, Google has teamed with creative artists who paint and turn the walls of Data Centers into beautiful murals. These murals help people understand technologies like Cloud, Google Maps, Google Search, Google Chrome, Google Drive, Gmail and many more.
