The Google Server


I got this image from CNET and it shows what the servers at Google look like. Apparently, they do not use uninterrupted power supplies (UPS) as there is a built-in battery on each and every server. Also, all their servers run at 12 volts. There is no 5 volt rail like most normal computers. That makes it more power efficient. Also, it looks like the motherboard has been specially made for Google by Gigabyte and it looks as well that they are running a RAID1 with two hard drives. Simple design…proprietary computer. That is the way it should be.
