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.

word invented by marketing managers

The cloud and cloud computing are both a result of engineering lingo. There was not much marketing behind the name. I surely used a symbol of the cloud to denote abstract services available remotely over a third party network at least 10 years ago.
