Sun acquires cloud virtual data center company

“The founders’ idea was to provide a virtual data centre for cloud-based computing services offered by both external and internal (inside an enterprise) data centre service suppliers. The server, storage and network facilities of a commodity-based physical data centre would be abstracted into a DAL, a database abstraction layer, and a language invented to instantiate and operate a virtual private data centre (VPDC) in a cloud.

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.
