Stacking Area: network.com

Yet another Innovating@Sun podcast is on the air (if you're listening over a wireless network, I guess). This time I grabbed Jim Parkinson, Vice President of ISV Engineering and Collaboration Tools, to talk about what his group has done with network.com in terms of providing optimized application stacks for public consumption. In the podcast, Jim relates how we've added bi-directional networking mechanisms to the Sun grid offering, so that jobs can access data sources that haven't been installed on the Sun side of the firewall. It's one more step in the evolution of flexible, rapidly deployed infrastructure -- and it's cool enough to make me temporarily forget that Jim is a die-hard Red Wings fan.
