Google's Server Architecture

Google has reveled their server architecture. Unlike most companies, Google makes their own servers rather than buy them from vendors. They are probably one of the only companies daring enough to try such a thing.

I find it interesting that instead of relying on large battery backup systems, they stick a battery in each server. Why? Saves money. Who would have thought?

I predict that Google will be a top five server manufacture in the company years. It would be needed revenue stream to diversify their reliance on advertising.
