Kick the tires on Cloud Computing

In this story, Geek.com does a quick comparison of available Utility Computing offerings:
“Sun Microsystems Inc’s Network.com offers flexible access to pay-per-use computing resources of the Sun grid computing utility and its growing catalog of high-performance computing applications. For example, a user is charged $17 US for using an application across 100 CPUs for 10 minutes each or 100 minutes on 10 CPUs (i.e., a total of 1000 minutes or 16.67 CPU-hours).”

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
