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:

No attempt was made to tie the sexy image to the dry technical content, and the words "dynamically grow or shrink ... as needed" do not count. Generally, the photos in the Tips and Tricks section are, to be frank, bizarre choices:
