Very cool to see Project Blackbox -- Sun Modular Datacenter -- shipping now. See Sun press releases in English and Japanese.

A Blackbox in a Japanese Coal Mine

You can put a little Blackbox anywhere, eh? I guess the Japanese are putting some (30 of them, actually) in an abandoned coal mine south of Tokyo not too far from Mt. Fuji -- Sun to Create Underground Japanese Datacente and Sun to set up datacentre in coal mine.

Project Blackbox is coming to Tokyo November 12-14 at Tokyo Prince Hotel. I'll be there with my camera. Here is some press about the Project Blackbox Asia tour: Sun Project Blackbox debuts in Asia.

SLAC's Truck Stop

SLAC's Newest Computing Center Arrives... by Truck: "This is a very efficient way to substantially increase our computing power without putting up a new building. We're excited to try out this novel solution," said Randy Melen, High Performance Storage and Computing team leader of Scientific Computing and Computing Services." -- SLAC Today

That is so cool. Another first. No one else is doing this stuff.

Project Blackbox Coming to Tokyo

I see that Project Blackbox is coming to Asia and will swing by Tokyo in mid November. Very cool. I wonder where they'll put this thing, though. There's not much room left in Tokyo. But it's a good thing Sun is doing earthquake testing (here, here) as a part of Project Blackbox. Seems like that would be an absolute requirement in the Japanese market. Anyway, when the big black box arrives, I hope to grab a snap or two.
