A Sun spokeswoman confirmed to Silicon Valley Sleuth that the two would launch a penguin monitoring project in celebration of World Animal Day.
There are some other options however. Cnet speculates that the event is about Google and Sun launching a partnership around OpenOffice. But reading the story, it's nothing but speculation.
Don’t rule out that Sun has succeeded in reeling in Google as a customer for its Galaxy servers running on Solaris. Google currently maintains a huge cluster of Linux servers, and rumour has it that the vendor has had a big interest in Solaris. Add to that Sun currently has the leading edge in industry standard servers with its Galaxy models that were unveiled last month.
After all, Google is a search provider. It doesn't make sense for Google to spend valuable research dollars on creating a Google server – which is what the company is currently doing. They're much better of having Sun do their heavy server lifting.
Sun and Google's new pet project. Happy 4 October.
