My last blog entry for this blog

Well, the time has come to carry on. This is my last day at Sun Microsystems. I've taken a technical writing position at VMware. 

I feel honored to have worked in identity management at Sun. Sun definitely does identity management right. Unfortunately, lately, Sun cannot say that about a lot of other products. However, identity management is quite a success story and it's only getting better. OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 is the top dog in the web access management market and it's getting the attention it deserves, inside and outside of Sun.

OpenSSO has gotten more popular since it was open sourced and it's even making money. In fact, it's seen huge revenue increases. So, it's been an exciting product to work on. I feel equally excited to work on virtualization at VMware. I'll see how that works. So that sums it up. I wanted to say bye to those who read my blog. Otherwise, you might wonder why I suddenly stopped blogging. So, now you know. Thanks.

Comments:

I'm happy to hear that you found a new position so quickly. VMWare should be a nice place to be.

Best of luck John! Thanks for all your hard work at Sun.

John,
I've bookmarked so many of your articles. This is a big loss for OpenSSO, Sun's Identity Management group, and tragically me -- I do nothing with vmware. Best of luck with EMC. I'll tell our vmware folks the technical information and specs are going to be a lot easier to read in the near future.

John,

So this time you're leaving Sun on your own terms. Congrats. You'll be missed around here. Well, you'll always have the Latvian server record to take with you: http://blogs.sun.com/factotum/entry/just_in_latvian_server_sets

Take care!

Joe
