There's a LOT of attention on the cooling processes and power supply. All in all, I was more impressed than I expected. And I was left understanding even more why their "competition" is having so much trouble actually competing.

Wondering about the reason for the containers: centralized creation of everything important? and ship it world-wide ready to hook up locally to power and cooling?
Saves a lot of engineering expense, I'd imagine. Everything (including airflow, which was mentioned in the video) is designed into a standardized unit, so there's no need to reinvent the wheel each time Google builds a new data center or adds a "hangar."
