Sun Donates Sun MD to China National Disaster Reduction Center


Today, Sun donated a Sun Modular Datacenter (Sun MD) to the China National Disaster Reduction Center (CNDRC).  The Center, under China's Ministry of Civil Affairs, is tasked with improving national disaster reduction efforts and providing the government with critical information and research on disaster reduction and relief.  The Center will use the Sun MD for back-up storage and management of data and applications including environment and disaster monitoring and forecasting.

Sun technologies powering the Sun MD include: SPARC Enterprise M5000 (database servers), T5220 (web servers), as well as Sun Fire X4200 servers and Sun Fire X4540 storage servers. The CNDRC's Sun MD will also use Sun software including MySQL, Solaris Cluster and the Lustre file system.

Comments:

Should have shown the REAL picture, or at least mentioned that the one being presented is only a scaled down model of the REAL thing, and why it is so different from (& superior to) all other servers. :-)

China leaders pay special attention to who donated what to this disaster. It would have been a very big news if this donation were made right after the disaster. But it's better late than never--and we need the REAL picture.

Thanks for bringing up this great news.
