I've gotten incredibly excited about Sun products that greatly expand the capability of MySQL. What's been great is the excitement is coming from customers. If you are using MySQL you really need to take a look about how these Sun products are leveraging MySQL in customer environments. The powerful features and cost savings are very significant so every customer should be looking at how they can benefit from these products.
ZFS - fast file system supporting volume management, snapshots and copy on write clones.
Glassfish – Application server
Zones/Containers - isolated virtual servers within a single operating system instance
Zone Cluster - high availability solution
Dtrace – powerful diagnostics tool
Open Solaris – powerful open source operating system
Sun Storage 7000 series - highly cost-effective storage solution

MySQL Training Sessions at Sun CEC
I will be delivering 2 - 3 MySQL training sessions a day during the Sun Customer Engineering Conference (CEC). These sessions are targeted towards Sun employees interested in learning a lot about MySQL, getting certified or getting into MySQL professional services. Each session will cover key areas of knowledge and certification topics. Each session will also include tips and information needed to pursue MySQL DBA certification.
These sessions are going to provide an in-depth immersion into the MySQL database server. We're also going to make these sessions, hands-on, interactive and entertaining. Attendees will learn the core fundamentals for managing a MySQL database server. "What happens in Vegas, won't stay in Vegas", attendees will take back a lot of core fundamentals for managing a MySQL database server. I'm bringing my "A" game to these sessions so I need you to bring yours. :)

Materials used for the course will be the MySQL 5.0 Certification Study Guide. Students will need to take notes from the lectures and use the Certification Study Guide book during lectures. Sun Rays will be provided using Windows 2003. Students that have a Windows or Windows VM are welcome to bring their laptops and do the installs and hands on work with their own machines. We are planning on using MySQL 5.1.29 for the sessions.
Build core fundamental knowledge in MySQL and show attendees the path to certification and where to find things so they can get certified.
Sun employees with some database experience (SQL, Oracle, Postres, SQL Server, etc) that want to get into delivering MySQL certification and consulting.
This agenda may change slightly as we get closer to the CEC.
