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.

The definition of the cloud is quite murky and ill defined.

From a consumer's perspective ( drop box, google docs, icloud) are " the cloud". How does anyone know that this "cloud" isn't just a single server? How is it different from the internet in this case?

From a service provider's stand point: architecture with high scalability and availability.
