Service Management Facility in S10

I promised I'd arrange for Jarod Nash'es slides on SMF, presented to the January meeting of the "London Solaris User Group"  to be posted in Sun's .com domain.

I have just posted them, finally, to the media caster. They are in .pdf. [ Jarod's SMF Slides... ]

This article was edited on the 5th April when I uploaded the version without a privacy marking.

Fantastic Day

OpenSolaris: Innovation Matters I'm just setting off to Sun Live, and I'll be dropping in to the London Open Solaris User Group (losug) at about 6:30 pm at the Westminster Central Hall.

Sun Live, is tag lined as "Evolution + Innovation = Revolution" and the revolution starts here. I always thought is was Electrification + Soviet Power; but we live and learn.

I publish on San Francisco time, the event is taking place on Tuesday 13th.

Yesterday & Tomorrow at the London Open Solaris User Group

Innovate on Open SolarisSo, I popped out last night after work to hear Jarod Nash, talk to the London Open Solaris User Group (losug) about SMF (the service management framework). An excellent and comprehensive pitch, and I shall post (or get Jarod to post) his slides somewhere and let you know where they are.

The next meeting is at Sun LIVE on March 13th, at Central Hall Westminster, where Simon Phipps is planned to talk to the group. Previous agenda have covered, Fault Management Architecture and virtualisation.

Otherwise the meetings are planned for the third wednesday of each month, except August, to the end of the year, to be held in Sun's City Customer Briefing Centre. (Apr 18th, May 16, Jun 20, Jul 18, Sep 19, Oct 17, Nov 21, Dec 19.) I wonder, if we can bring the discussion held internally about features required for a laptop desktop into the public. It was certainly lively enough, and given that its now opensolaris, non Sun people need to join in.

I have tagged this both within roller and at technorati, I am considering placing reminders in the brought forward feature for the next meetings (with technorati tags) to allow anyone to set up a technorati watch list on these tags and thus receive the reminder's through their favourite RSS reader.

Let me know if you'd find this useful.

Open Solaris User Group in London

Innovate on OpenSolaris Gavin Maltby, presented on Solaris' Fault Management Architecture. It is so hard to really get home how some of the very low level features of Solaris are unique and compelling competitive advantage. We all know hardware fails, but systems don't always have to do so. FMA allows Solaris to fail through some faults that bring other UNIX (or UNIX like) systems down and to recover rapidly from others. The engineering team have revisited the UNIX panic thing and improved Solaris' behaviours and diagnostics. This is an availability technology and as those of us who have worked on Consolidation Economics know, downtime costs money. In fact, the wrong (or too long) downtime causes business to fail. (Ask me about my local video shop some time?)

I am not sure that this meeting was the best for me to attend since most of my time and thinking is much closer to systems users as opposed to the hardware and this software is very close to the hardware design. The hardware designers should now be designing for it. Its one of the technologies that stems from Greg Papadopolous 5th eigenvector. "Best on Solaris". It's because we design the CPU, system and OS, we can create this technology and deliver the improved uptime benefit.

It was good to meet the other attendee and I shall be back for the January meeting. You might like to join me since there's free booze. (There's a December meeting but its on the 20th and I don't think I'll make it.)
