Oracle buys Sun Microsystems…

April 21, 2009

… and I like it.  I was going to try to post a link to both a positive and a negative opinion, but I am having trouble finding a negative one.  I’m sure there’s one out there, so if you know of one, post it in the comments so we can get some good perspective.

Here’s a positive opinion:

I see some real good here.  Oracle is great at marketing, and Sun could use a marketing makeover at present.  Oracle presents themselves as a straightforward, professional kind of company.  I think that this combined with Sun’s passion for strong enterprise products will be a good addition to Oracle’s large enterprise product portfolio.

Please, let us know your thoughts.  Agree?  Disagree?

The Sun Microsystems Modular Datacenter fits in a shipping container

See Sun Modular Datacenter in Action

 Just saw this today in Sun’s Inner Circle newsletter – a modular datacenter.  It uses an exceptionally small amount of space (comes pre-packed in a shipping container), is green (not in color, but in eco-impact), and has a neat Flash-based marketing deal on the website…  I spent quite a bit of time looking over this demo.  Really, this is amazing.  Check it out and tell me what you think!
