Project Blackbox strikes again!


Last week, the Sun Modular Datacenter S20, aka Project Blackbox, made a stop in Washington DC (it was housed in the South Parking Lot of the Pentagon!).

This week, the results are in from this year's Government Computer News (GCN) Best of FOSE awards -- the annual competition designating the best new products showcased at the annual FOSE Conference and Exposition, being held this week in Washington.

And our Project Blackbox is a WINNER. YEAY!!! :-)

Greening the Data Center


A recent Smart Enterprise Magazine article highlights efforts that CIOs can take to reduce consumption within the data center and highlights Sun's work in this area. The piece notes, "Awareness among CIOs is growing, thanks to skyrocketing energy prices, growing concerns over global warming, a series of worldwide droughts and the general prominence -- on both the political and cultural fronts -- of the need for greater energy conservation. Many CIOs also have a floor-space problem: While they're being asked to do more, they are not being given additional funding for extra data-center space."

So what's the solution?

Customers line up for data center in a shipping container


Today we announced new customers for Sun Modular Datacenter S20, widely known as Project Blackbox. These new implementations for Hansen Transmissions, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre (UMCN), Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS) and a second unit at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) highlight the global demand for Project Blackbox -- a virtualized, modular datacenter housed in an enhanced 20-foot shipping container.

"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."

Need one? Contact Sun. ;-)
