Sun Microsystems Hosts CommunityOne Open Source Developer Conference for World's Technology Communities

In his opening keynote at the annual CommunityOne open source developer conference, David Douglas, senior vice president of Cloud Computing and chief sustainability officer at Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAVA), will discuss Sun's overall commitment to open source, building communities and will showcase the company's newly announced Open Cloud Platform. Sun will also preview plans to launch the Sun Cloud, its first public cloud service targeted at developers, student and startups. As part of its commitment to building communities, Sun will release a set of Open APIs, announce broad partner support for its cloud platform and demonstrate innovative features of the Sun Cloud.

Douglas' keynote will include a series of interactive interviews with community leaders from Eucalyptus, RightScale and Zmanda who will discuss opportunities that are created by the innovations of Sun's cloud platform. One of the demonstrations to be featured is an extension for Star Office(TM) and OpenOffice.org(TM). It will enable millions of users to easily save to and open documents from the cloud. In addition, Eucalyptus is expected to announce their open source cloud APIs supporting Sun's Cloud. The developers also intend to integrate Eucalyptus APIs in the next version of Ubuntu OS. These APIs will enable developers to easily create applications they can deploy on the Sun Cloud.

CommunityOne, a Sun-sponsored event, is a dynamic and diverse gathering of open source developer communities that includes thousands of developers and members from the Apache Software Foundation, Eclipse, GlassFish(TM), Grails, MySQL(TM), NetBeans(TM), ODF Alliance, OpenID, OpenOffice.org, OpenSolaris(TM), Python, Ruby and many others. Now in its second year, the CommunityOne gatherings have brought together more than 5,500 attendees, including students from 80 countries to share in the power of communities. Growing in popularity since its launch in San Francisco in 2007, this is the first time CommunityOne will be held on the East Coast.

On Thursday, March 19, expert educators from Sun Learning Services will lead deep technical tutorials on building dynamic Web 2.0 websites, designing robust enterprise applications and harnessing the power of the world's most popular open source database. CommunityOne will also offer hands-on technology demonstrations and an “open space” for open source groups to hold public discussions.
