SMART Moves or Dumb Plays .... ITs All Locked and Revealed in D.NAProfiles ....
.....with Dessert Inner Centres?
"Sun is going to operate a public cloud and will initially target developers and startups as the users for the platform."
Hmmm. Does that actually mean that they themselves will be hypermanic and proactively target/contact third parties spontaneously with Flash Cash Engagement for their Businesses/Programs/Principals. Or will it be the same old Brain Dead Model which has them as the Big Brother Peer Reviewer/Overseer, drawing a Fee Stream for Services Rendered on IT InfraStructure/Sun's Corner of the IT Infrastructure rather than propping up a Competitor and another Moribund Market Parasite/Virtual Bug/Industry Pimp?
For the Former they will need SMARter Phormation Intelligence whilst for the Latter, just some dumb Hicks with more Money to Lose than Cloud Sense to Use.
It will be interesting to hear of their choice in the decisions/mergers and/or acquisitions/joint ventures made.
Given that they haven't set the World alight with anything in the Past, does the Present hype suggest a Future from them with the Latter Model Driver still Leading their Programming ....... although with some new SuperFluidIT Acid/Great Whitehat Hope Dope introduced into their Virtual System of Operation/Cloud Control, you would never be QuITe sure what sort of AIMagical Mystery Turing Trips they'd be Enabled to dDeliver ....... although of course, they Sure as Hell would, and Fully Assured and Insured and Secure in ITs Secured Core Processing Units too.
Uncle Sam may have to Conclude and Concede, in Order to Race Ahead, rather than Wallow and Falter Badly and Madly in Despair and Disrepair, that they are Newbies in the Stealthy Environment of Cloud Formation Flying and Informed Phormation Phishing and ITs CyberIntelAIgently Designed Virtualised Power Controls. ....... InterNetworking Network Levers, and thus is ITs Field, a Vitally Important Strategic Investment Priority/Necessity/Ooportunity.
Miss that Boat and All will Drown at Sea in Stormy C Conditions rather than Survive and Prosper in Bright dD Domains...... [which you should notice is not a question?]
