Many of us at Sun have worked on a new whitepaper around building cloud architectures for enterprises and service providers. This paper can be downloaded here.

It cover's some nice "cloudy" principles:
\*Evolving application architectures
\*Changing approaches to architecture
\*Changing application designs
\*The goals remain the same
\*Consistent and stable abstraction layer
\*Standards help to address complexity
\*Loose-coupled, stateless, fail-in-place computing
\*Horizontal scaling
\*Parallelization
\*Divide and conquer
\*Data physics
\*The relationship between data and processing
\*Programming strategies
\*Compliance and data physics
\*Security and data physics
\*Network security practices

Where's Jason?

So just a little update since I've been away for a couple weeks. The family and I moved from Tucson back to Colorado, more precisely Denver.

Rather it is a dwarf planet, the first of its kind. I’m sure Lowell and Tombaugh (Clyde discovered and help name the planet in 1930) are delighted by this new distinction — regardless of what kind of planet it may be.
