LDOMS is Now Called....

...Oracle VM Server for SPARC

BigAdmin will be publishing new content on Oracle VM Server for SPARC (LDOMS) soon, including an update of our Virtualization Hub.

In the meantime, if you want to use some cool graphics tools to analyze the performance of Zones, Containers, and Oracle VM Server for SPARC (LDOMS), check out....

What We've Been Working On



That's a picture of my boxer, Penny, after she finished raising Buster, my other boxer.



Buster, pictured below, is much younger.



After last week I felt more like Penny than like Buster.



Lots of work going on inside Oracle to design the section of the Oracle Technology Network that our BigAdmin content will migrate to.

In fact, content from these three sites will be combined into one section on OTN:

That way developers, students, and admins can find general content about Solaris and related technologies in one place, plus how-to articles and resources specific to their roles.

I'm also sifting through BigAdmin's 3500+ content resources (not counting the HCL, which has over 10,000 entries) to see what migrates to the Oracle Technology Network and what doesn't. I'm making that decision both by the popularity of the content and the relevance to Oracle's technology offerings. Naturally most of our Solaris 10-related content will migrate, but most of our Solaris 9 and Solaris 8 content will migrate, as well.


Wicked sorry that I'm not keeping the MOTD as updated as Robert used to, or the MOTD Archive populated. Things will settle down a bit once we complete the migration to the Oracle Technology Network.

Are you bored with the BigAdmin HCL?



Are you bored with the HCL? No longer impressed with the 1277 systems (as in servers, desktops, laptops, and motherboards from Sun and OEM vendors) and nearly 1700 components that run Solaris 10?

Can you barely muster the enthusiasm to raise an eyebrow at the more than 6000 systems and components that run OpenSolaris?

Never fear. We've just added about a hundred (that's 097 for you guys in the camo fatigues) entries for virtualization platforms that run Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris:




Virtualization Platforms That Run Solaris

The virtualization HCL has tabs for:

You can sort the contents of every tab by:

Pretty cool, huh? Now you can go back to being your regular old exuberant sysadmin self.
