Partners with 11 Other Firms to Build Datacenters in Coal Mine

Sun and 11 other entities are collaborating in the construction of an
underground data center in a worked-out coal mine in the Chubu region
on Japan's Honshu island. Sun will contribute its signature Project
Blackbox, which can typically provide 250 servers mounted in seven
racks inside a standard 20-foot shipping container, as Chris Mellor,
of Techworld reports. With T-series processors, Sun claims a single
Blackbox can hold up to 2,000 cores, providing 8,000 simultaneous
processing threads.
