Mark Bowker offers his definition of what the cloud is and what it’s made up of.

Oracle to talk Sun hardware on October 14
The Register

Timothy Prickett Morgan writes that Oracle will talk about its plan for Sun’s Sparc server business during its October conference.

“Oracle, which will presumably soon own Sun Microsystems, has not said much about its plans for the Sparc server business at Sun since announcing its takeover in April – but apparently the top brass at the company are going to assuage everyone’s fears that Oracle will ditch Sun iron, and will do so on October 14 at the OpenWorld extravaganza hosted by Oracle.”
