What To Give Your Favorite Sysadmin on Sysadmin Day

Source

Happy Sysadmin Day.

As the site says ...

This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work ..."

We understand that times are tight, so we don't expect you to buy your favorite sysadmin a Ferrari. That can wait till next year. But it wouldn't hurt to rent them one. Just for the weekend. To remind them what a weekend feels like.

Which Version of Solaris Were You Running When ...

Do you remember which version of Solaris you were running when Voyager 1 first lifted off? I'll give you a hint: Voyager 1 lifted off from Earth on September 5, 1977. Since then it's been traveling a lot faster than the firebreathing Ducati Desmosedici. Well, the damn thing has reached a speed of about 38,000 mph (suck on that, California Highway Patrol!) and is nearly out of the Solar System.

Try to guess ...

  • n00b. Facebook hadn't even been invented yet!
  • BSD 2.10.1
  • SunOS 4.1
  • SVR4
  • Solaris 1.2.3
  • Solaris 7
  • Solaris 10 09/77
  • I hate questions like this one. #sand.

Lucky for you, Oracle has just released Oracle Solaris Legacy Containers. Don't want to part with your favorite version of Startrek running on SunOS 4.1? Tough. We can't help you with that. But we can help you continue running Solaris 8, Solaris 9, or Oracle Linux applications on the latest Oracle Sun hardware. Granted, that's like putting an engine governor (or has the term become governator?) on a Ferrari 458 Italia.

Be still my beating heart.

I can relate, though. I still like riding my old-tech Harley Davidson Softail Custom once in a while even though a little old lady on a souped-up Moped can smoke me in the quarter mile without losing her basset-hound bedroom slippers.

Solaris Legacy Containers are integrated with Oracle Solaris virtualization technologies, you can manage your legacy apps with the same tools you use to manage the rest of your server, and take advantage of the same capabilitites. There are plenty more goodies to get your motor revving. Find out more here:
