Data Center Knowledge has a story titled "Google Data Center FAQ" with information and speculation about Google's data centers.

Pingdom has also produced some illustrations including maps and photos.

This is also covered at The Register.

In all fairness, Google provides a little more information than the article gives them credit for:

In terms of Atlanta, GA there is one data center and it is located SW of the city. The second Google location in the Atlanta metro is their sales office.

Many of them haven't been purchased by Google, but by other people. Google is a trademark, so Mountain View's firm have get back several domains, after complaints.

Yeah, Pingdom pretty much say that in the post. Although many other sites are misleading linking to them saying they've got a list of domains that Google actually owns.
