Project Blackbox

This is what I want for christmas: a Blackbox from Sun. It’s a 20 foot shipping container with a complete datacenter. Simply add power, water and a big internet pipe, and you’ve got a datacenter with these specs:

  • Up to 1000 cores – 8 CPU’s on a core = 8000 CPU’s!
  • Seven terabytes of memory
  • Two petabytes of storage

I’m not entirely sure what I’d do with it or how the neighbours would respond to having that parked in the driveway… 🙂
