Sun Microsystems continues to generate media attention with its Project Blackbox  portable data center, which it has now taken on the road. On Monday the Blackbox-on-Wheels made a pit stop in Manhattan, as chronicled by Information Week :
At a spot normally occupied by yellow cabs and pretzel vendors, a mobile, 18-wheel data center crammed with millions of dollars worth of servers and other computer systems sat parked Monday afternoon outside New York City’s Grand Central Station in midtown Manhattan. … (Sun eco-computing VP Dave) Douglas says the price will vary widely based on configuration but added that the trailer parked Monday outside Grand Central, which drew more than a few curious looks from passers-by, contained about $2.5 million worth of high-tech systems. Forget The Club, put a LoJack on that thing!
