Project Blackbox is a virtualized datacenter that targets large-scale network service deployments, such as Web 2.0 expansion, field deployment operations, emergency response, and datacenter consolidations and build-outs. The modular datacenter provides includes a configurable mix of servers, storage and networking in a 20-foot shipping container. Racks are packed tighter than is possible in a traditional datacenter, and integrated, centralized cooling, networking and power distribution provides a cooling system 20 percent more efficient than that of a traditional datacenter. It can be populated with 250 Sun Fire servers configured for grid computing across seven racks inside the container. An eighth rack contains network switches, a dehumidifier, thermal management systems, and alarm and EPO controls.
