Watch this Space in 2009: Sun's Cloud ChalkTalk with Analysts

In a ChalkTalk discussion with Analysts, Sun Executives talk about our Cloud Division and more. InformationWeek's artcile quotes Sun Cloud VP, Dave Douglas's advise: "Watch this Space in 2009"

And I echo that sentiment!

Yes, Sun is Reaching for the Clouds.

Drupal For Facebook and OpenSocial

If you are a Drupal user and have been wanting to develop Facebook Applications using Facebook APIs or Facebook Connect, there is Good News. Dave Cohen just released a Drupal for Facebook  add-on module for Drupal which allows Drupal sites to integrate with Facebook, and cutting-edge Facebook Applications to be built on top of Drupal. I attended a Drupal meetup yesterday where Dave walked us through how to build Drupal Apps for Facebook and it was very clear that Dave has put in tremdous amount of work and due diligence to make it easy for rest of the community to easily plug into Facebook. Try it out!

Sun is offering Drupal/Open Solaris/Apache/MySQL bundled image on EC2. For details, Pl. click here.


Drupal comunity is further looking for a volunteer to stepup and build a plugin for OpenSocial. Any enthusiasts out there willing to help out? The OpenSocial plugin would enable Drupal developers to build Apps for Orkut, MySpace, Ning, Hi5, Hyves, Friendster, RockYou, SocialSite and all the upcoming OpenSocial Platforms. I am imagining a site that might mashup social data from all these different platforms to build a unified community across them! Cozy!
