Re: Batteries???

They're switching over to the Google pioneered system where each server has its own 12 V DC battery. The savings comes in from the fact that the centralized UPS design has losses from ac and dc conversions for one, and for two the power transmission from a centralized location has greater power loss from heat over longer lines to the servers than a direct battery connection.
