Power your enterprise from a container

Initially found out about the Black Box project from Eddy Young , on his blog entry.

The idea as Sun suggests is simple and innovative and the recipe is as follows take your average everyday shipping container , wash it up , do some electrical wiring , install some racks , place your servers , routers and switches weave everything up in a network and there you have the utilmate power house the BLACK BOX.

And to tell you the truth its a rocking good idea . Now Sun has less hassel when it has to ship servers world-wide. However I do wonder how practical it is if your company is on the nth floor of some building , would the Black Box go through the elevator ...or the stairs :p .

Some interesting popential uses of the Black Box have already emerged on the net .
