While we continue to eat leftovers from Thanksgiving here in the U.S., the multiple Project Blackbox Tours roll on. We finished up Seoul last week and the container was bundled up for its trip to Sydney and Canberra Australia. Canberra is Australia's largest inland city and is the seat of government for Australia.
The local information and handouts are always fascinating to me, here is one from the stop in Seoul.
Amongst other things, there is a bit of trivia on the handout. While listening attentively in my Solaris Internals class I've been learning the Korean language on the side (actually, the translation comes from Jacob Yang, Systems Marketing Manager in South Korea). The trivia on the handout reads:
What's the code name of Sun's mobilized data center?
If you need some help, it is a part of the URL you used to get here
Here's a trivia question for you, if Blackbox is the code name for this thing, what is the price listed name going to be? Can't tell...sorry...but feel free to take a guess!
And speaking of price-listing, you must have seen the recent articles like Sun to set up underground data center to save on power or Sun goes underground in Japan ! 30 containers with 10,000 cores at a depth of 100 meters. A little management with Sun xVM for the systems may be in order so you don't have to go visit this thing all the time!
The upcoming tour stops are:
- Sydney / Canberra Australia from 12/18 to 12/20
- Mexico City the week of 12/3
- Sao Paulo, Brazil, week of February 18th
