Sun has been earthquake testing its datacenter housed in a shipping container--Project Blackbox--at the University of San Diego (UCSD), which has a “shake table,” more formally known as a Seismic Response Modification Device.

The video shows Project Blackbox shocked by a 6.7 magnitude earthquake. It survived with some detached power cords, dents and loose screws, but its integrity bascially intact. The shaking occurs at 1:50 minutes into the video.

I would also guess that Philip Papadopoulos, Program Director of Grid and Cluster Computing at UCSD, who is featured in the video is the brother of Greg Papadopoulos, Sun's CTO.
