Sun Project Blackbox debuts in Asia

Sun Microsystems’ data center in a box makes its first Asian tour debut in Singapore today. Dubbed Project Blackbox, the portable data center makes a scheduled stopover in the island-state from Oct. 2 to 4, followed by a tour in four other cities in the Asia-Pacific region–Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul and Sydney–between Oct. 22 and Dec. 20, 2007.
“Slated to be officially launched worldwide Nov. 20 this year, Sun Microsystems’ portable system was first unveiled in October last year. Several racks of computing gear, as well as power and cooling equipment are housed in a stackable, standard shipping container that measures 8 feet wide, 8 feet tall and 20 feet long. Watch the video on the inner workings of Sun’s Project Blackbox.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
