A very inciting point of view about the future OS of so called concept Internet of Things (IoT) you can find in the article ”Android will power the Internet of things”, published in the Blogs section from InfoWorld.

This perspective is very interesting, especially considering the large opinion Java is pushed as “the on-ramp to the Internet of things”.

You must read the original article to see the main arguments used by the author to consider Android as a winner in IoT race, and expect the reaction of Java community…

HOW CLOUD IS MAKING PEACE BETWEEN HISTORICAL TECH RIVALS…

Cloud Around the World blog posts category just changed in Cloud Trotter…

USA flagFew days ago it was an historical announcement unpredictable 5 years ago… Microsoft and Oracle announced a partnership that will enable customers to run Oracle software on Windows Server Hyper-V and in Windows Azure. Customers will be able to deploy Oracle software — including Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server — on Windows Server Hyper-V or in Windows Azure and receive full support from Oracle. 

Larry & Bill

As part of this partnership, Oracle will certify and support Oracle software — including Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server — on Windows Server Hyper-V and in Windows Azure. Microsoft will also offer Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server to Windows Azure customers, and Oracle will make Oracle Linux available to Windows Azure customers. Java developers, IT professionals and businesses will benefit from the flexibility to deploy fully supported Oracle software to Windows Server Hyper-V and Windows Azure.

The rivalry between Oracle and Microsoft dates back several decades and has been marked by a personal rivalry between the companies’ best-known cofounders: Larry Ellison and Bill Gates. Today, both companies are facing competition from youngest Internet age rivals like Google. Amazon, and Salesforce. Microsoft is seeking new sources of revenue from online services as demand for personal computers slumps, and Oracle is shifting its focus to business software sold through online subscriptions rather than installed on customers’ own computer servers.
