Is Sun Rising or Setting?

Today was strange.

First Sun announces it’s open cloud computing platform.

Sun Unveils Open Cloud Computing Platform

“Sun on Wednesday announced plans to offer its own Open Cloud Platform, starting with server and storage services aimed at developers who need an extended platformto produce a new application.

Sun expects to have cloud servers and storage available to customers by “this summer,” where customers will run applications under Windows, Solaris or Linux in Sun VirtualBox virtual machines. Open Cloud Platform will compete with Amazon(NSDQ: AMZN).com’s Elastic Compute Cloud and S3 storage services.”

IBM in Talks to Buy Sun in Bid to Add to Web Heft

“International Business Machines Corp. is in talks to buy Sun Microsystems Inc., people familiar with the matter said, a combination that would bolster IBM’s heft on the Internet, in software and in finance and telecommunications markets.

The two companies have a common interest in that both make computer systems for corporate customers that aren’t reliant on Microsoft Corp.’s Windows software, and their product lines are less dependant than rivals’ on Intel Corp.’s microprocessor technologies. The two companies are also strong supporters of open-source Linux and Java software.”

All I can say is stay tuned.
