Sun Modular Datacenter is revolutionizing how the world adds datacenter capacity. Whether it's cost-effective instant capacity for emerging markets or eco-friendly deployments for universities, Sun Modular Datacenter is reaching new customers worldwide who have been waiting for just this type of breakthrough solution. 

Sun Modular Datacenter (Sun MD), widely known as Project Blackbox, is a high-density, energy-efficient datacenter configured in an enhanced 20-foot standard-size shipping container for rapid deployment-virtually anywhere. Engineered to minimize energy and space requirements while maximizing compute density and operating efficiency, Sun MD delivers compute capacity where and when it’s needed most, without the up-front expense of building an entire new datacenter. There’s no need for special computer rooms, raised floors, or air conditioning, and Sun MD can be configured, deployed, and redeployed quickly - so compute capacity can be added incrementally and on demand.
