Sun in a box – a very BIG box October 21, 2006Posted by Matsu in Apple, Humor, Information Technology, Technology, Web.
Thanks to Chris J. Davis, I discovered this new product from Sun. No, Chris, you can’t have one for your cubical. And, it’s too big for your parking space, so you’ll have to do without one.
Have you ever wished that your data center could be moved with very little effort and be set up quickly once it reaches its destination? Well, Sun Microsystems is glad to announce that your wishes just came true.
They call it Project Blackbox . Sun describes it as the worlds first virtualized data center.
The good thing is you don’t have to ever unbox it, just plug it in and it’s ready to go in the box! I suppose the wheels are available as an accessory.
Hmmm. Is this like PODS? And, will Apple be coming out with their own “iPODS” data-center-in-a-box? If they do, I bet it will look a lot better. After all, everyone knows that Apple has great packaging.
