Cloud Computing, in its current incarnation, falls short on its promise to make computing as a whole as simple as plugging an application into a utility service. The “cloud” model initially has focused on making the hardware layer consumable as on-demand compute and storage capacity. This is an important first step, but for companies to harness the power of the cloud, complete application infrastructure needs to be easily configured, deployed, dynamically-scaled and managed in these virtualized hardware environments. Thus "Elastic Computing" enters and enhances the cloud computing model by allowing companies to efficiently and cost-effectively configure, deploy and managing clustered, highly-scalable applications in cloud computing environments. This session will discuss in greater detail how these models work in concert and how to gain business value from them. Spo... (more)

Now Sun Wants To Be a Merchant Chip House for Virtualization

So Sun has in hand its latest Sparc chip, the 1.4GHz Niagara 2, officially the UltraSparc T2, and expects it to be available in production quantities this quarter. It'll go into Sun 1U and 2U boxes and blades in Q4, but Sun is also gonna try to get the wee beast picked up by people who make set-top boxes, routers, switches, medical imaging, industrial printing, storage and cars, a dicey high-volume strategy that would make a big difference in its prospects, big enough for it to say it's "wide open" to what it'll accept in licensing terms for derivative works. Hopefully Sun's pro... (more)
