Web 2.0 in a Box

My friend at SUN forwarded me this news, and I thought I'd share. Think Web 2.0 in a box. Yup, and a mighty big box at that. You plug in a really big pipe with mega-bandwidth, another with power; and, a third with water for the cooling system. Then flip the switch and turn the puppy on. Instant data center, in a shipping container. If you don't have a GooglePlex at your immediate command, which isn't out of the question at some point, then this is an awesome, portable solution. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the gear is uber-industrial strength SUN hardware running, well, whatever you want: Solaris, Linux, la ti dah. Sweet. Good work, Scott.
