Google’s Batteries

its just cool, eh?
In the recent CNET article Google finally published specifications on their servers. They have batteries mounted on the chassis. Instead of going for giant data center batteries, they went with individual batteries on every server. I would be very interested to see their statistics on lifetime expectancy of the batteries. Plus, their power supplies appear custom manufactured since it provides only 12VDC to the motherboard, and the motherboard handles the voltage stepping. Its anyone’s guess how long it will take manufacturers to start selling server/workstation equipment based on the simplicity of it the design.
