Oracle puts down the Sun Cloud

As the acquisition of Sn Microsystems finally closed, one of the first official acts taken by Oracle is to terminate the program known as Sun Cloud. It would have been a platform for building cloud architectures using an API based on Sun’s standards, including Java, MySQL, and OpenSolaris. Larry Ellison has gained a reputation for mocking cloud computing as a concept, suggesting that any client-server architecture would qualify.

Oracle has promoted its Fusion Applications SaaS platform as a cloud-like alternative. It is several years in development and does not yet have an official release date.
