Can you find the sysadmin in the picture?
You might be able to on Thursday, August 23rd. OTN is hosting its next Sysadmin Day in Denver, Colorado, and we can never keep track of our sysadmins. In a place as purty as Colorado, it will be even harder.
Note: The date on the link above is incorrect. The correct date is Thursday, August 23rd.
Our previous OTN Sysadmin Day in Santa Clara had almost 100 attendees. The one in Denver will have similar presentations, but we're adding some content on virtualization. Which we hope to expand into a third track in the future. As usual, Pavel Anni opens our OTN Sysadmin Days with a talk about Oracle's dual OS strategy. He explains why Oracle offers two operating systems, and summarizes the main features of each one. Then we split off into two different groups to get our hands on each OS.
One group gets their hands on the ZFS filesystem, virtualization capabilities, and security controls of Oracle Solaris.
The other group gets their hands on the package management tools, services, and runs levels of Oracle Linux, plus its volume management tools and the Btrfs filesystem.
Both groups learn by doing, using the hands-on labs similar to those on OTN's Hands-On Labs page. Why attend an event in person when you could simply work the labs on your own? Two reasons:
- Since you are away from the obligations of the data center, you get to focus on working the labs without interruption.
- You get help from Oracle experts and other sysadmins who are working on the same labs as you.
