HP announces 'Datacentre in a box'

Performance Optimized Datacentre - or POD for short.

The specs say that the 40-foot container can house up to 3,520 compute nodes (blade servers) - 5000 if you use the new SL servers - and 12,000 3.5-inch hard drives, or any combination, which HP claims to be the equivalent of a 4,000 sq ft data centre. Third-party blade servers can be used. PODs can be stacked two high.

Prepare to hand out over $1m for one of these bad boys.
