Conveying little insight into the operation of a hypervisor-powered on-demand computing warehouse, the baffling picture doesn't appear to be a temporary filler photo, having been uploaded in November 2011. The Reg was compelled to take these screenshots FOR SCIENCE after reader Martin kindly tipped us off last night:
