Sun Crams the Entire Internet In a Box

k3_md_picture06OK, so the entire Internet is already in the box on your desk, and possibly most of it fits inside your phone, but Sun’s partnership with The Internet Archive means that 3 petaflops¬†petabytes of archived web pages is also stored in a shipping container. Yes, I have this thing for data centers in a box, but if a group is going to corral the bits and bytes required to generate a historical record of the web, cramming them into a shipping container rather than a large data center seems like a compact (and efficient) way to do it. Check out Sun’s tour for a closer look.
