Sun’s Project BlackBox Using Shipping Containers as Server Rooms

| Monday September 10th, 2007 | 0 Comments

sunbox.jpgI love shipping container architecture, but the following innovation by Sun Microsystems takes it to a new place. “Project Blackbox” offers clients portable data centers inside of standard shipping containers. Not only is this easy and safe to deploy and transport, but it apparently takes a lot less energy to cool, and as a semi-permanent structure is obviously a lot less resource intensive in its construction. No word on whether these are used or new containers, however.
