Rajesh has an interesting observation on using Google commands to discover some external/internet-facing deployments of Sun Java System Portal Server. So essentially a peek at the power and simplicity of Google search, as well as some insight into the adoption of Sun's Portal in a particular category (i.e. external-facing), if you will.
Basically, you can type -- inurl:"/portal/dt" -- in the Google search text box to get a sub-set  of the external/internet-facing  Sun Portal deployments on the web. The results show diversity of deployments; traction in the commercial/enterprise, government, education, etc spaces..
 sub-set since this may only capture the deployments that have not modified the default, out-of-the-box URL ("/portal/dt"), as well as largely picking non-localized deployments (Sun Portal is localized in many languages), etc. Also, the search results presumably reflect the extent of what Google picks up at any given moment. Other caveats may apply.
 internet-facing since obviously the search results do not capture intranet URLs; a large proportion of deployments are inside company firewalls (e.g. B2E, etc).
