    I think Sun Cloud is DOA sadly 🙁 I saw many of the departure emails go out a month or so ago when they announced the cuts. As far as I can tell the Sun Cloud team is nearly gone.

    A Sun friend of mine recently told me they spent almost $200M building out their 1$/hr infrastructure years ago, with probably even more spent subsequently in their Las Vegas cloud.

    The world is a bit worse off that Sun’s great technologies won’t be part of the mainstream cloud.

    Yeah, it is sad that Sun will not be part of the cloud saga.
