Data Center in a Box! That's Cool!

Sun has been keeping secrets again, even from me!  It's always fun to learn new things that Sun is doing by finding press releases at Yahoo.

In this case, it's a general purpose data center in a box.  (Well, it's a big box, a standard shipping container, really) Called project Black Box, it's apparently been under development for a few years.  The details will be announced at 9 AM EDT. 

Why should you care?

If you have a need for fast portable computing power this could be just what you need.  It could be a military deployable compute capability our simply augment a retail company during the Christmas season.  I would anticipate a good demand for this kind of thing where I work in Sun Federal.
