Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Sun says the much-valued BluePrint documentation project will continue, despite the redundancies of several key staff.

"BluePrint is alive, well and healthy and has a very strong ongoing plan," a Sun staffer told us. A posting made by a Sun staffer on his weblog posting listing some of the names has been truncated to just one line. The comments remain, and indicate just how highly the team is valued by customers.

"What the manager does with the staff is an operational matter and the names involved are an HR issue," said a Sun source. We couldn't confirm if the jobs will spontaneously "emerge" somewhere cheaper.

"In light of Sun's recent and appalling bean-counting, penny pinching, blood-letting, cube razing... perhaps someone should read Scott McNealy's opinion of 'BluePrints' which is still published on the actual site," writes a British-based technology consultant.

A reader who wishes to remain nameless writes: "Until blogging engages in dialogue with the outside world, and abandons the monologue ('talk to yourself, will you?'), it will remain the intellectual autoeroticism it has become. Hello, Sun, Microsoft - can you hear me?" ®
