Project Blackbox at the Palace and Moving on...
By pmonday on Feb 07, 2007
As you look at Project Blackbox on the tour, you have to start thinking about the little things on the container that Sun is investing in and has thought of. I'll talk about a few of those things over the coming weeks, but here is an awesome picture :-)
The complexities of implementing a data center in a container are quite intriguing, you don't just bolt a bunch of racks to the floor and send it off on the truck. Fortunately, at Sun, we get to make it look easy.
We've had great attendance at The Palace Hotel, busier than the planners expected. Perhaps the most interesting comment was that the roadshow is helping clear up the concept that people had heard about, but didn't really grasp fully.
I especially enjoyed the list of personalities that Joe sent out that had toured the container while at The Palace Hotel:
No pictures of Elvis or Jimi touring, unfortunately. The pictures turned out fuzzy and, yes, they toured together. Perhaps a mega-band ala 80's Power Station or Honeydrippers is in the works.
