Sun Blackbox - underground datacenter in a Japanese mine

Remember Project Blackbox?

Sun to set up datacentre in coal mine

"The disused coal mine is located in the Chubu region on Japan's Honshu island. Sun will build 30 Blackbox self-contained datacentres containing a total of 10,000 servers (cores). This can be increased to 30,000 cores if there is the demand for it."
