Community East-- Welcome to Sun's Public Cloud!!
By suncpo on Mar 18, 2009
It's public. Sun's building a public cloud. We're also throwing in access to the tools to help everyone else play in this space. It's a bit like Alice Waters publishing cookbooks-- the recipes were all lovingly created & tested over time but you can take them home & riff off of them to feed your family & friends well.
That said, if you want the best meal you're likely to ever eat, come to Chez Panisse.
It's all about choice and creativity and ingredients that are world class. There will be & should be many in this space. Everyone who wants to play should consider well the ingredients.
As for the data, there is more to come in this space-- People, Process AND Technology. We can protect it. We can operate with the highest ethical standards. We can shape our information environment today and we must for it will most certainly shape us.
An unrelated vid sent to me by my friend Wini that's worth a watch is attached here. It will make you want to work harder and play harder & try to love both along the way. Enjoy the wind in your hair today!
Just a thought...
