sun should get into the hosting business

Sun keeps trying to offer Sun essentials for startups to Amplafi. The problem is that we don’t want to purchase services at the box level. We want to purchase at the java vm level. Buying a box means we have to worry about maintaining it. But that is the level that Sun is used to talking at and selling at.

We are agnostic out of necessity to questions about os, hardware, etc…. so Sun needs to go further up the foodchain for Sun to be able to sell to Amplafi.

Sun should stop being afraid of pissing of partners and start experimenting with offering their own hosting service at the java vm only level. After all who can manage Sun boxes and Sun’s java vm better – Amplafi, JoeBlow’s hosting service or the people who wrote the vm and built the box?
