Sun Gets Further Behind Clouds With Q-Layer Buy

Sun Microsystems this week snapped up Q-Layer, a provider of middleware for dynamically provisioning cloud computing services — a move that better positions Sun to offer the tools sought by companies running their own clouds.

Through the deal, terms of which were not disclosed, privately held Q-Layer’s employees will become a part of Sun’s (NASDAQ: JAVA) newly formed Cloud Computing business unit, which the company created late last year.

Juan-Carlos Soto, vice president of marketing for the unit, said Q-layer had a good grasp on a vital element of cloud provisioning.

“The real power in someone being able to offer clouds for their use or customer use is the ability to dynamically allocate resources and let users self-provision under those resources,” he told InternetNews.com. “The Q-layer technology lets us do that and get to market quicker for customers who want to run their own clouds.”

Q-layer’s technology simplifies cloud management by enabling users to quickly provision and deploy applications. The software supports instant provisioning of services such as servers, storage, bandwidth and applications, enabling users to scale their own environments to meet their specific requirements.
