new customers for Sun Modular
Datacenter S20, widely known as
These new implementations for Hansen Transmissions,
Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre (UMCN), Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS) and a second unit at
Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) highlight the global demand
for Project Blackbox -- a virtualized,

"We have found that it has broad applicability," notes Sun VP for Integrated Platforms Darlene Yaplee. "We have seen different examples of customers using the data center in different ways. It's not just one segment. What we are hearing from our customers is that many of them are growing out of their current data center space and they are looking for a high density solution that is eco-efficient."
