Google Server Rack Number One-Thousand

Urs Holzle, Google's senior vice president of technical infrastructure, posted a picture he had from his archives of the 1,000th server rack Google purchased in their history. He posted the picture on Google+ and wrote:

A bit more than 11 years ago we installed our 1000th rack, shown here on the loading dock. We knew it was #1000 so we tricked it out a bit. These racks were a bit cleaner than the original corkboard racks :-) We called them fridges because...well, I don't know why.

Just to clarify we didn't actually have 1000 live racks at that time, since many older racks had been retired. This was the 1000th Google-designed rack ever produced.

Pretty cool!
