[Sun Microsystems:Innovation] Project Blackbox : Startup-esque Data Center Innovation From A Not-So-Much Startup
So this might be the coolest (pun only partially intended ;) idea I have seen come out of Silicon Valley in a VERY LONG TIME.
I don’t know what Jonathan Schwartz is putting in the coffee at Sun these days, but whatever it is…
Please be careful… It’s *HOT*. ;)

Sun Microsystems believes many customers will prefer to buy data center equipment in convenient shipping container-sized modules rather than building more expensive and elaborate buildings on their own. It plans to show off the idea, called Project Blackbox, at its Menlo Park, Calif., facilities on Oct. 17.
Componentized, Lego-like Data Centers. Now *THATS* innovative!
