    You mean this stuff?

    Efficient UPS Aids Google’s Extreme PUE « Data Center Knowledge
    Google Files Patent on UPS Architecture « Data Center Knowledge

    One of the keys to Google’s extraordinary efficiency is its use of a custom server with a power supply that integrates a battery, allowing it to function as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). The design shifts the UPS and battery backup functions from the data center into the server cabinet. This design provides Google with UPS efficiency of 99.9 percent, compared to a top end of 92 to 95 percent for the most efficient facilities using a central UPS.
    A group of engineers from Google have applied for a patent on a highly efficient server-level power supply that integrates a battery, allowing it to function as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). The design effectively shifts the UPS and battery backup functions from the data center into the server cabinet.
    Not here, and I don't know of anyone outside of Google and possibly Facebook who are. I don't think there's a standardised product out there that offers this, Google certainly build most of their own servers currently. I think you'd have to have a large amount of servers and possibly be running on DC already to make it worthwhile. Definitely and intriguing idea, although I'm not sure how big the on-board batteries would have to be in order for them to offer the same amount of runtime most of us currently get from running ~10 servers off an APC5000.
