I was hoping it would be Google. They are doing amazing things with their in house designed server container data centre systems.

And the brilliant idea of using motherboards that only need a single 12V supply so that each one has a gel cell battery to act as ups which increases power efficiency substantially.
Coupled with high voltage (250vac) power distribution, closely controlled airflow and evaporative cooling using recycled water make the Google data centres some of the most energy efficient on the planet.

I agree with all the said above ,but since I have read some interesting posts about cloud computing information and security , i become somehow doubtful about the safety and security of this new technology as i intend to invest , so i want your recommendations
