Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

That is arguable. I don't like the "Cloud" word used in this context. "Services available through Internet" sounds more accurate, more buzz free and more "back to the ground".


It is a bit of a buzzword however what it means is quite well defined IMO.

When someone says "Cloud" I always remember Web 2.0 and AJAX and other artificially created marketing/press terms calling something already existing but with a more sophisticated name.


Web 2.0 maybe (TBH I think everyone accepts that WEB 2.0 means user generated content) ... AJAX no ... While there was other ways of updating the page from another server they were extremely hackish.
