Is there a difference between www2/3 and the other datacenters? I do not mean between algo/results/filters, I mean more along the lines of why are they named differently and do they have a different significance? I did a search and couldn't find anything. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I am looking to see if www2 and www3 are actual datacenters like -lm, -fi, -va, and -in to name a few. Or like you mentioned each datacenter can have multiple names like -kr and -kr2. Would www2 and www3 be backups to the main index?

www2 and www3 are not datacenters, so to cut to the chase, their isn't any reason to really pay attention to them.

Google has many datacentres each with a slightly different database. When you search at www.google.com you get a random (and different) datacentre each time. You can search directly at each datacetre as well.

Try www-fi.google.com, then -in, -va, -ab, -dc, -cw, -ex, -zu, -lm, -mc, -kr, and -sj.

For each datacentre -xx there is also a matching -xx2 version too.

The www2 and www3 addresses point to a static datacentre, often for many days or weeks at a time, and then it is suddenly changed again.

I don't know about -xx3 at all. Not tried that.
