Hello Cloud! The Announcement and the Example

ALT DESCR

Today, at CommunityOne East, Sun unveiled more details of its Cloud initiative: A world of many clouds, both public and private, that are open and compatible.

The initiative enables the definition and deployment of Virtual Data Centers, leveraging q-Layer, xVM and VirtualBox and components like OpenSolaris, MySQL, GlassFish and Web Stack.

For more details, check Cloud@Sun, the Launch Event and this Overview. I also enjoyed reading/watching about the SuperNat center and TheRegister ran an Overview White Paper.

Also check the personal perspectives from Craig and Tim, who were directly involved in defining the RESTful API for manipulating the cloud. The APIS are under Creative Commons license (see Opening APIs) and are available at Kenai, see API home and Hello Cloud project.
