Stanford Gets First Sun Blackbox

Stanford Gets First Sun Blackbox – miller60 writes “The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) will be the first end-user to get a Project Blackbox portable data center from Sun Microsystems. The 20-foot shipping container (which will be white, not black) will sit on a concrete pad behind the computer building with hookups to power, a 10-gigabit network connection and a chiller located on an adjacent pad. The ‘data center in a box’ will allow the SLAC to expand its computing capacity even though its existing data center has maxed out its power and cooling.” Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors

I remember the first Celerons or 'Cellys' back in the day. Cheap and relatively good for someone who can only work on one task at a time. Not for an uber geek or insane multi-tasker as you would be able to tell whether or not you were using a Celeron by just sitting down and using the PC for 15 minutes. Either way, an affordable alternative to the current Intel Core Duos.
Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors - Multi-core chips are sweeping the processor market and single cores are becoming harder and harder to find. This trend is about to go through the roof while prices plummet to the basement.
