Cloud Gets Cloudier - Sun Challenges Amazon as IBM Buy Looms

Picture Holder1

Sun Microsystems is offering the strongest challenge ever to Amazon, one of the leading providers of cloud services, with the debut of its open cloud platform. Sun's new products compete directly with Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2 services. Incidentally, with reports flying around that Sun is look to sell itself, and IBM emerging as a potential buyer, the cloud space is getting even more cloudier. IBM just signed a wide-ranging partnership deal with Amazon Web Services and plans to offer a range of software products through Amazon's cloud computing platform. What is clear though is that one of the most important shakeout news in the cloud ecosystem perhaps, has been immediately overshadowed by reports that computing giant IBM is in talks to buy Sun.

At its CommunityOne developer event, Sun Microsystems, Inc.showcased the Sun Open Cloud Platform, the company's open cloud computing infrastructure, powered by Java, MySQL, OpenSolaris and Open Storage. Signaling what it believes is a massive opportunity to open the world's nascent cloud market, Sun also outlined that a core element of its strategy is to offer public clouds and previewed plans to launch the Sun Cloud, its first public cloud service targeted at developers, student and startups.

Sun envisions a world of many clouds - public and private - that are open and interoperable. With the Sun Open Cloud Platform, Sun is aiming to drive a paradigm shift away from proprietary clouds that limit choice and lock in customers toward a world of open and interoperable clouds. Leveraging open source technologies, the Sun Open Cloud Platform aims to bring together Java, MySQL, OpenSolaris and Open Storage to deliver better software development.

"Sun's approach to cloud computing blends our expertise in developing open source software and communities with unique design innovation. Sun's Open Cloud platform is the first step in delivering on our vision of a world that has many clouds that are both open and interoperable," said Dave Douglas, Senior Vice President, Cloud Computing, Sun Microsystems. "Our cloud architecture empowers developers with the expanded interoperability and freedom of choice they need to easily take advantage of the agility, efficiency and cost benefits of cloud computing."
