Google uncloaks once-secret server



The articles discusses Google releasing information on a server they once kept secret. Basically, it uses a 12volt battery for each server/mainboard (in case of power loss); according to the author this help in keeping the data more efficient as well as saving on energy and costs less than using the standardized UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) system. the system also provides better all round performance.
While the article doesn't deal directly with Information Design per say, efficient data is required for smooth running of systems, especially in the case of a company as big as Google.
