Sun releases Creative Commons-licensed API to their new Cloud

On stage at CommunityOne East in New York just now, Dave Douglas (Senior Vice President, Cloud Computing and Developer Platforms) and Lew Tucker (CTO, Cloud Computing) just unveiled a RESTful API to Sun’s new Cloud.

Walk-on parts during the hour-long streamed presentation included two recent podcast victims; EUCALYPTUS Project Director Rich Wolski and RightScale CEO Michael Crandell, both of whom pledged support.

Sun’s official announcement is here.

Sun has also released A Guide to Getting Started with Cloud Computing, which offers a useful overview of the basic issues whilst relegating most of the Sun pitch to a separate section.

GoGrid have, of course, already released an equivalently licensed API of their own.
