Datacenter in a box, literally !

Sun Microsystems doesn’t want you to build your own datacenter anymore, instead they want you to tow your datacenter to that remote location by truck…like this.

This blackbox is designed to use Solaris 10, can hold 240 Sun Fire servers and gives more than 1.4 petabytes of storage. [A petabyte of data is equivalent to 250 billion pages of text.] Pricing is not defined and is not standard though. The blackbox will be configured to your needs and you can subscribe the box on a service agreement too.
