SLAC adds second Sun Modular Datacenter

To meet significant amounts of streaming data from ATLAS and GLAST simulation and mock data challenges, SLAC has installed their second Sun Modular Datacenter S20 (Project Blackbox).

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.
