After years of secrecy, Google revealed the inner workings of its ultra-energy efficient data centers at yesterday’s Data Center Efficiency Summit.

Each of Google’s servers comes with its own 12-volt lead-acid battery as a back-up to the main power supply, and all of its data centers are made up of standard shipping containers. Individual centers each contain 1,160 servers and consume up to 250 kilowatts of power.
