Above the Clouds

So, the Sun Cloud has finally been announced.  And, on the same day, IBM leaked news about a bid to buy Sun.  Fortunately, the IBM stuff did not rain on our cloud.  Developers, startups, and partners were buzzing all over our booth at Community One East asking about storage in the cloud, how we are different from Amazon and the rest of the market, how we are alike, and when they can give us their credit card.  Wednesday was an exciting day, especially for this product manager.

Here’s where you can go for more info leading up to our summer launch:

  1. sun.com/cloud – This site will keep you up to date with what we are doing across the board in cloud computing.
  2. kenai.com – We’re using our own “forge” to host the project containing the APIs for the Sun Cloud.
  3. network.com – Well, that now just redirects back to the sun.com/cloud page.
  4. wikis.sun.com – You can find some other stuff there about the Sun Cloud that is delivered from our business operations side.

Make sure you sign up for CommunityOne West in San Francisco and JavaOne, where we’ll be announcing more about the Sun Cloud.  Or, just stay tuned to our Web announcements.  Either way, if you’re interested in the cloud computing space, Sun has some intriguing services coming your way.

  1. about Suncloud wiki: Even the introduction page is unauthorized (I’m not Sun, but…). Sigh…
