The scientists working at the enormous machine on the Franco-Swiss border achieved the unique conditions on 7 November. The experiment created temperatures a million times hotter than the center of the Sun."

I've seen some of the hardware google uses and it's not fancy name brand redundant everything servers. In fact their setups might shock some IT traditionalists. They seem to use standard mother boards mounted on open shelfs(no case), with a psu and an IDE hard drive.

From what I've read about google their philosophy is it's better to have a number of redundant servers, then one critical server.

There are running jobs. Why don't you go chase them?
