    Today’s Google announcement on Back up with independent batteries mounted with every server is getting thumbs up.

    You still need batteries that need charging, monitoring and replacing. Consumption and supply chain is not eliminated.

    Having a Fuel cell Back-Up system in a data container that only turns on when needed should be a valid value propositions.
