Old news

Per U.S. News:

Alphabet Inc's (GOOG, GOOGL) Google said in 2016 that it was designing a server based on International Business Machines Corp's (IBM) Power9 processor.

Have they put anything into production since then? If not, why bring this up?

UPDATE: R. Hubbell writes by e-mail:

So yes I think the move to the IBM is due to their encounter of the exploits.

A lot of lip service is given to the hazards of the monoculture. But why PPC of all things? Is Google becoming incapable of dealing with any supplier that is not a megacorp?
