Sun Goes Deep with Sun Modular Datacenter D20

Continuing to advance its leadership in the modular datacenter space, Sun today released a new deeper rack model of the Sun Modular Datacenter (Sun MD). Known as Sun MD D20 (versus S20 for the original configuration), the new model provides customers with new choices for deploying a broader spectrum of enterprise-class servers and storage in their modular datacenters.  The deeper rack configuration is particularly key for customers who run larger database applications or who want to use Sun MD for back up and recovery or other business critical solutions which require larger amounts of disk and tape.

From the Sun portfolio, the new Sun MD D20 supports systems including the Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 and M5000 servers, Sun StorageTek SL500 Modular Library, and the Sun StorageTek 9985V System. Sun MD also supports a wide range of third-party equipment in both the standard and deep rack configs.

Since its official launch in January 2008, the Sun MD has taken the world by storm and has been deployed by numerous global customers - especially those in emerging markets - for a broad range of applications in high-performance computing, education, manufacturing, government, telecommunications and healthcare. The Sun MD is also the only containerized datacenter certified for regulatory and safety compliance as well as for fire-suppression in over 50 countries world-wide with installations on nearly every continent.

More information on Sun MD is available here.

Next week, Project Blackbox will appear at the GEOINT conference in San Antonio (home of the puffy taco), TX and three weeks later will swing back through Nevada appearing at Supercomputing 2007 (Nov. 10-16) in Reno.

Registration for all stops on the Project Blackbox Tour -- including November and December dates in Mexico and Canada are (or will be) here.

Keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' -- Project Blackbox Takes Manhattan

 

The Project Blackbox tour rolls on-- stopping this week in NYC and then heading onto Burlington, Mass next.  Dave Douglas, CTO for Project Blackbox and Sun's VP of Eco-Responsibility, hosted some press folks who braved chilly temps in Midtown yesterday to get the lowdown on Project Blackbox live and in person. I heard tourists were actually stopping and snapping pix with the Blackbox. Maybe we should have tried to park it over by the Today show!

Paul Monday, over at the Project Blackbox blog, is providing running commentary on the tour and interviewing folks closest to Project Blackbox.  (BTW - Thanks, Paul for the pic above!). Information Week also has a nice image gallery on the NYC stop as well.
