Eweek is reporting that Sun Microsystems’ new cloud computing division is focusing on converting older enterprise data centers first because that’s where the migration problems are cropping up.
“You can’t just take some prepackaged legacy application running somewhere
and just throw it into the cloud," Tucker told eWEEK in a separate
interview. "With virtualization, over time, we will be almost able to do
that. In time, we’ll be able to virtualize basically the old data center, and
therefore you’ll be able to move your applications over into it.”
