It's long been known that Google builds its own web servers, enabling it to design the servers for peak performance and energy efficiency. At today's Google Data Center Energy Summit, the company put one of its custom servers on display.

The design shifts the UPS and battery backup functions from the data center into the server cabinet. This video runs about 1 minute, 30 seconds.
