Data Centre for $500K

SUN Microsystems has developed a "data center in a box."
The expandable computer system, called Project Blackbox, is based on a standard 20-foot shipping container and can be deployed virtually anywhere there is electricity, chilled water and an Internet connection.
The water cooled system is painted black, and has seven racks of 35 server computers based on either Sun’s Niagara Sparc processor or an Opteron chip from Advanced Micro Devices.

There can be no doubt that this simple idea can be revolutionary.
